I love the full-length Llama Llama books. They usually have a nice story with a great message, packaged in a sweet and accessible way. Llama Llama and the Bully Goat is no different, telling the tale of a troublesome classmate who just seems intent on stirring up trouble. He mocks the other kids. He interferes with their play. He teases them for having dolls. (I'd hate to see Gilroy Goat's home life; his behaviour hints at something potentially problematic.)

What I really like about these books is that they present a problem and then show kids how to deal with it. In this book, the bullied kids (Llama and Nelly) eventually stand up to the bully and then go and tell the teacher... who believes them and does something about the problem. In an ideal world, this is what should be happening, and I like how it's handled here. Gilroy gets his time-out and a chance to reflect on his behaviour (he'd already been told to stop, so it wasn't like the punishment came out of nowhere). Eventually, the kids all end up playing together and having fun... once Gilroy gets his bullying behaviour under control.

The illustrations are, as always, adorable. It's fun to see all the different animals that make up Llama's class. There's everything from a kitten to a gnu... and the teacher is a zebra!

This is another strong title in the Llama Llama series. I'd definitely recommend giving this one a try.

Quotable moment:

Gilroy Goat was acting like a total jerk the whole day until the teacher pulls him aside on the playground. The next thing we know we are back in the classroom and he's an angel. My question is this: what did the teacher say to him on the playground that intimidated him SO MUCH? Was it a threat? Another thing . . . Gilroy's father seems like such a nice guy. How did his son go this far astray? I gotta be honest folks, this Llama Llama book left me with more questions than answers. Usually I really enjoy these, and this one is good too, but there are a couple things in here that make me raise an eyebrow.

PreS-Gr 1-Llama Llama and his friends cannot enjoy their school day because Gilroy Goat is being a bully. He laughs at the other animals during circle time, and he calls Llama Llama a "not-nice name" when he tries to sing. Although Gilroy's teacher tries to correct his behavior, the bullying continues into recess (dirt throwing and destructiveness) until the llama calls him a Bully Goat. Realizing he's hurt potential new companions, Gilroy is happy to accept Llama Llama's renewed offer of friendship. Dewdney's characters are rendered in paint, pencil, and pastels. The victims, the bully, and even the witnesses all look scared, worried, or sad throughout the story. This book clearly shows children the social, emotional, and academic consequences of bullying, how to take a stand against it, and how to be tolerant of someone who needs a second chance. A great discussion starter.-Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

I never thought to much about how the characters looked in the story, but since the review mentioned it. I would completely agree. It shows real life what a little boy or girl might look like if they are being bullied. I also agree that this book would be a great book to share with younger grades or even some older grades about bullying. I read this book aloud to a group of students from 1st to 7th grade. I think that it hit home with them on how they should act.

Dewdney, A. (2013). Llama Llama and the Bully Goat: New York, NY: Penguin Group.

Review 1
Fletcher, C. (2013, September 15). [Book review of Llama Llama and the Bully Goat, by A. Dewdney]. Booklist. 110(2). Retrieved from NoveList Plus database.

Fletcher states that Llama Llama and the Bully Goat is appropriate for Pre-school- Kindergarten. Bullying is not fun, your day can be ruined by one person. Fletcher states that Dewdney’s solution is to “walk away and tell someone.” This is good advice given through pleasant rhymes and nicely textured illustrations.

Review 2
Warran, D. (2013, July 15). [Book review of Llama Llama and the Bully Goat, by A. Dewdney]. Publishers Weekly. 260(28). Retrieved from Novelist Plus database.

Warran states that Llama Llama and the Bully Goat is appropriate for Pre-School to Kindergarten. She states that as llama grows up, he is less “llama drama” and more of a peacemaker. This story espouses the value of getting adults when there are bullies acting out, and giving them second chances.

My Review
This book is appropriate for Pre-school to First grade. Llama used to always have his own drama, as he grows up he wants to help others. Llama notices Gilroy goat likes to call names, laugh at kids for participating, and ruin things. Dewdney teaches the importance of letting an adult know through clever rhyme. It also teaches forgiving and giving those bully goats another chance. This book is engaging and teaches important life lessons to young readers.

This is one of those books that teaches children various ways to bully others, and the resolution does not necessarily connect in the child's mind to the problem. (See my review if Nurture Shock.)

This is a fairly typical entry in the Llama Llama series by Anna Dewdney. It depicts our adorable Llama Llama in a preschool/kindergarten setting, playing with friends, singing, and doing crafts and other activities.

The class bully is mean to his classmates, but I like that he is able to turn his attitude around, rejoin the group, and make friends again with his classmates, so there is redemption. It may not be entirely realistic, but I think it's a better ending than the little goat remaining a mean bully.

Overall, it's a fun, fast read and will likely appeal to young children, especially those who are in preschool. I think it will work more as a warning to not be a bully, rather than how to solve a problem with a bully.

This is a great book that I read to the kids in my class because we were having problems with respecting each other and I feel like reading this both and emphasizing the things that the bully goat was doing to the other students wasn’t right. Asking the kids what they thought about his actions and letting them express if they thought that it was right or wrong. They also love to read along with the part where I change my voice to say that the llama is a bully goat. The book teaches the kids a lesson about how their actions affect other is the classroom.

1. Friends, who can remind what we learned a bully way yesterday? Now, I don't want you to amused my question, but just think about it in your head. Think about a time when someone has bullied you, been hurtful to you, or mean, what did you do? I'm sure those aren't the best memories, but do any of you have a way that you handled it in a positive way? What are some things you can do if you are being bullied? Now, I want you to think about those and see if your mind changes or stays the same as we read our book today.

Today we are reading Llama llama and the Bully Goat, by Anna Dewdney. In this book Llama encounters a mean goat named Gilroy, while he is at school. Why do you think there are bullies at schools? Llama llama must figure out a way to handle the situation. in the most positive way he can. Will llama llama be able to stay positive and kind, or will Gilroy's hurtful ways make Llama llama fight back....let's read to find out.

2. I used these opening moves: ask children to make connections to a previously read text, lay groundwork for helping children understand the theme, draw attention to the setting.

3. I used this book because it allows children the opportunity to brainstorm ways to handle bullying situations. It would also allow me to the opportunity to tell students that I know there is bullying that occurs in schools, and if anyone ever feels unsafe or scared to let myself or an adult know right away.

o Summary: All of the animals at school and singing, playing, and having a good time. Their good time is ruined by Gilroy the Goat when he makes fun of them for everything they are doing. At first he gets told to be nice and after he does not listen, he gets a time out. He then is able to go back and play with the other students. He is much nicer and is now their friend.
o Grade level: 3rd
o Appropriate classroom use: This would be a fun read aloud because of all of the cute pictures and fun words since it rhymes.
o Individual students who might benefit from reading would actually be everyone, especially students that are bullies or are being bullied.
o Small group use: Students who are bullies or are being bullied could read this to themselves.
o Whole class use: if there is a problem in the classroom involving bullies or if bullying is being discussed, this would be the perfect book to read aloud especially to younger children.
o Related books in genre/subject or content area: there are several Llama Llama books!

It was only a matter of time before the loveable Llama Llama would encounter someone who seems aggravated by everything and downright mean. Llama Llama and his classmates decide that they have had enough from Gilroy who behaves just a bully goat. After informing their teacher about his behavior, they all work together to model appropriate behavior for him and help him get along with others. In the end, maybe, just maybe Llama Llama has made a new friend. This is an excellent book to open conversations about bullying without making everyone feel uncomfortable. The suggestions are practical and easy to incorporate in stopping a bully in his (or her) tracks, and the oil, colored pencil, and oil pastel illustrations will certainly bring smiles to the faces of young readers who already adore the earlier titles in this series.

My 6 year-old came home, frustrated because he'd been dealing with a bully at school. He selected this book for us to read together; but the book's message (that one slight bit of adult intervention will instantly turn a violent bully into a best friend) disgusted and infuriated him further. Can't say I blame him...

This book discusses the difficult concept of bullying through a story about Llama Llama and Gilroy Goat who is a bully at their school and treats his peers in a mean and harsh way. Gilroy Goat points and laughs at his classmates when they sing songs in class, and he calls others mean names when they try to talk to him. During recess, Gilroy Goat kicks the dirt and gets sand on Llama Llama's shirt when Llama Llama asks him to play, and he screams, shouts, and stomps around the playground. It is clear that Gilroy Goat is definitely a bully goat, but by the middle of the book, a lesson is taught by his teacher and he is put in time out for his misbehavior. He eventually learns that bullying is no fun, and he should be a friend to everyone in his class, so he begins to change his attitude and act in a kind way towards Llama Llama.

The overarching main theme of this book is the concept of bullying and learning to be nice to all your peers.

Though I have never personally been victimized by a bully over a long period of time, I have definitely experienced situations where a friend was not treating me right. I have experienced friends leaving me out or talking about me behind my back, and it definitely hurts to know that someone is intentionally saying or doing something negative to hurt you. Bullying is a major problem that is dealt with at schools and in communities, and it is a topic that kids should learn about so that there can be a stop to it. I think a major reason why I did not experience harsh bullying as a kid was because of the great job my teachers did at teaching us how to be kind to one another. I can remember my preschool teachers reading us books about bullying and teaching us lessons about kindness and how to help a friend out, and I definitely think it worked.

I really liked this book as it rhymed, which made the story easy to follow and interesting to read. Because of its message, I would recommend this book for children because it shows how bullies can act and then teaches a lesson about why it is important to be kind to our friends. The reason I did not give this book a full 5 stars was because I liked it a bit less than some of the bullying books we have read in class, but I still think that it teaches a great message. Kids need to learn about the reality of bullying since it is a real thing that is prominent in so many school settings. By reading books about the topic, children have the opportunity to learn from the situations and gain knowledge about the importance of friendship and kindness.

Book Summary: Llama and his friend Nelly are being bullied by a goat in their preschool class named Gilroy. Llama and his friend confront Gilroy about his behavior and let the teacher know too. After taking a break with Mrs. Zebra, Gilroy has learned how to be a friend and spends the rest of the day playing with his new friends Llama and Nelly!

Characteristics that support the genre: Llama Llama and the Bully Goat fits the genre of a “picture book” because it is an original story fueled by a wealth of imagination with a theme that addresses children’s needs and understandings of the world around them. The plot is simple, and brief with illustrations that support comprehension of the characters, story and setting occupying a majority of the page. In addition, the writing style is rhythmic and repetitive, a typical quality found in many children’s picture books.

Bookshelf Mentor Writing Ideas:
-Ideas: The ideas in the story clearly support the book’s theme of friendship and anti-bullying.
-Presentation: The text in this book is clean, large, and easy for young readers to read. Additionally, key words in the text have been bolded, enlarged, and are printed in a different color. Furthermore, the pictures on each page directly correspond with the text on the page.
-Sentence Fluency: The text has an identifiable style that has a specific rhyming and rhythmic quality to it. Meanwhile, other pages use a more choppy, repetitive style to add emphasis to important phrases or words.

Classroom Integration: While the reading level of this story is most suitable for first grade students, this book can be read aloud to younger kindergarten and preschool classes during social skills/ emotional learning lessons to illustrate how to be a friend and give advice about what students should do if they are being bullied. In addition, the rhyming words in the text can be used to exemplify rhyming patterns for students in primary elementary grades who are beginning readers that are learning why words rhyme as an extension of their phonics instruction.

Other Suggestions: Slightly older elementary students could have fun creating their own addition to the Llama Llama series/collection my creating a unique story and adhering to the rhyming style of the author.

Llama is in class with a bunch of other animals and they are all having fun until they start singing a song and Llama, sheep and calf all sing it silly and in their own way. Gilroy Goat thinks that its funny and starts laughing at all of them and calls them names. Teacher interrupts and informs that calling names is not ok. They all go out to recess and they are all playing nicely together until Gilroy is mean and kicks dirt and sand and pushes them around. All the other animals get mad at him and say they will leave and they end up walking away and telling the teacher. Then Gilroy gets a time-out and with the help of Teacher, they try to mend the friendship and all play together. They sing the song again and this time Gilroy sings too instead of making fun of the other animals. They leave school waving goodbye and friendships are restored. The main theme of this book is dealing with bullies. When in school, kids will always have to deal with someone that they don’t agree with or are picking on them and the best way to handle those situations is walking away and telling someone and then having conflict resolution.
I gave this book 5/5 stars because of the theme and the lesson that it teaches. The students that were being picked on handled the situation by telling the teacher and then it also showed that Gilroy was punished for what he did. This obviously doesn’t always happen in real life but it shows that if you take initiative to confront the bully and tell the teacher and have conflict resolution, you can end up friends at the end of the day. There are ways to handle bullying situations and this book was a great example of how that can be done in school. This can be very relatable to many students and all kids in the classroom setting. The book was also really fun to read because most of it was rhyming and the pictures were cartoons and all bright and colorful. I would recommend this book because of its relatability and its ability to teach kids about how to deal with bullying in a nice, restoring way.

Summary: Llama and his friends are doing activities in their classroom at school. When it is time for circle time, they all sing songs and play but making their own personal noises. Gilroy makes fun and laughs at everyones noises and is being mean. At recess, Gilory's mean behavior continues and his friends don't like it. His llama friend then stands up to him and the teacher give Gilory a time out. After time out he gets a second chance to play. He realizes he has fun with his friends and shouldn't be mean.

Theme: The theme of this book shows what bullying is and how it affects others. Bullying is not ok and Gilroy learns from his actions. Just because someone is different than you (or is making a different noise than you) , it is not ok to laugh and make fun of them. This theme describes bullying and accepting others.

Personal Response: This book shows and explains that bullying is commonly seen in the classroom or with young children. Often in the classroom kids bully or are mean to others and this book shows how to deal with that/ not participate in that behavior. Bullying can affect many groups of people and can scare them for life, so it is important that kids and classrooms understand what it is and what harm is can cause.

Recommendation: I enjoyed this book and believe that it is a awesome tool to teach kids about anti bullying in the classroom and life. It makes it easier to understand with the use of animals and is also more interesting than just a regular bullying informative book. School teachers, counselors, and parents should use this book as a tool to talk about bullying in and out of the classroom. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

The book "Llama Llama and the Bully Goat" is about a young elementary school class of young animals, and all of the children are learning about each other and becoming friends. Llama Llama is the main character, and he witnesses how Gilroy Goat is picking on everyone. Llama Llama at first did not know how to respond. Then, he remembered how his teacher told the children to walk away and tell someone if someone was being mean. At the end, Gilroy Goat is called out and punished by his teacher. Llama Llama had mixed feelings on reporting Gilroy's behavior, but he knew it stopped the bullying of the other children.

The theme for the book is focused on how to recognize people's differences and how to identify bullying. Children will see how everyone is different, but instead of ridiculing differences; this book can teach children how to value each other's differences.

I felt like this book is successful in teaching children on how to be friends with everyone, even with people who may not be the same as you. In addition, children may have an easier time relating to the characters as they are animals with human like characteristics. The bullying theme is also touched on, and I think that is beneficial to have children see and hear some of the characteristics of a bully. The actions to take against a bully is another lesson young children should learn as well.

I would recommend this book to grades 3rd and below, as the lessons above are beneficial for children to learn at a young age. The challenge I would see is not teaching children to stand up to bully's, as the teacher encourages the children to tell her instead. Beyond the one change, I think this is a great book to show child differences within a classroom and show them as a gift rather than a flaw.

Llama Llama is bullied by one of his classmates.

During circle time, Gilroy Goat laughs at how his classmates are singing. Their teacher immediately shuts this down, but later at recess Gilroy attempts to dominate the space in which Llama Llama and Nelly are playing, name calling and kicking sand. They tell the teacher who puts Gilroy in a time out, which apparently cures Gilroy, and he, Llama Llama, and Nelly are able to play nicely together.

This picture book addresses bullying. I appreciated how Llama Llama's teacher immediately tried to nip things in the bud when Gilroy behaved inappropriately unlike Chrysanthemum's teacher who would redirect Victoria but never directly said that her behavior was not acceptable. Llama Llama also isn't reluctant to tell the teacher when Gilroy bullies him behind her back.

Being a picture book, Gilroy has a change of heart rather quickly. After his recess timeout, the teacher asks Llama Llama and Nelly if Gilroy can play with them. Then everything is fine, and the three children are all friends by the end of the day. Perhaps, Gilroy was just in need of attention.

Book Summary: Llama Llama and the Bully Goat is a story about how all of the other animals are having a good day at school, but Gilroy the goat tries to destroy their good day. He is mean to the other animals until the end when something happens and he decides it's not okay to be mean to the other animals.

Bookshelf Genre: Picture Book

Characteristics that support the genre: The pictures show how the goat is being mean to all of the other animals. It goes with the words that the author put on each page. I really liked the pictures.

Bookshelf Mentor Traits:
Voice: When Gilroy laughs or gets in trouble the font changes color and is capitalized putting emphasis on those words.
Word choice: She uses rhyming words and predictable words to help readers.

Classroom Integration: You could use this book when you are teaching a lesson on bullying. You could how the goat who was the bully and the other animals who were the victims felt when they were either bullying or being mean too.

The Llama Llama books are a WONDERFUL series for your very young readers up through preschool age. After preschool age, these are great books for your beginning reader to start to read out loud. The rhyming text and beautiful illustrations make this a fun book to read. And as a parent, I appreciate that Dewdney also includes a wonderful message and/or learning moment for your reader.

This is probably my favorite Anna Dewdney Llama Llama book. First of all, I would recommend to add this book to your reading list before your child starts daycare and/or school. It has such a good message in the story and is a relatable circumstance that children might find themselves in. Second, I greatly appreciate how Llama Llama and Nelly handled the bully situation and think they serve as role models. And third and my favorite part, I LOVE the fact that Dewdney allows the bully to change in the story. Kids are kids and they make mistakes but they don't have to be the villain.

Llama Llama and the Bully Goat by Anna Dewdney is a children’s picture book published August 6, 2013. This book is about a young school age IIama who was being bullied in class. This child did not know what to do and was afraid of telling. This book is recommended for children age 5-8. A child can learn from reading this book that it is okay to tell and ask for help if and when you encounter a bully. This book is interestingly written because it tells this story by using animals. The author uses animals for entertainment to show kids bullying is a problem. I rate this book a 4 out of 5 because it is a cute book for children, the pictures are appealing, and the animals are illustrated nicely. Bullying is quite common in schools so this book would be a nice introduction for children who could use a story to help them relate.

Llama Llama is at pre-school with all his friends. Everyone is having fun and getting along except for Gilroy Goat who points and calls names. The teacher explains that name calling and being mean is not allowed. During outdoor play time Gilroy calls names again and pushes, snickers, laughs, kicks, stomps, throws things which causes his friends to tell him to stop it or they'll go away.

In a double page aside to the reader the author emphasizes that "being bullied is no fun. Walk away and tell someone."

Gilroy gets a "time-out", a reminder, and is included in the afternoon activities after calming down.

I found myself as a story performer hurrying through this to keep the children's attention.

Llama Llama is learning a lot of new things at school and how to deal with bullying is one. When Gilroy Goat starts to tease his classmates and mess with them on the playground, Llama Llama doesn't know what to do. He then remembers that he was told to walk away and tell someone when this behavior is happening. Read to see how Llama Llama makes the situation better!


Personal Review:
This is the perfect book for a situation that involves bullying at school! I recommend this book because it does a great job at showing the ways bullying can happen and what to do if it does happen. It encourages kids to walk away and tell somebody in order to stop the mean actions. The illustrations go along perfectly with the actions and make it a great book to read.

This book, as the title suggests, touches on the topic of bullying. What does it mean when someone laughs out loud at your efforts? What does it mean when someone makes fun of the toys you play with? What does it mean when someone kicks sand or dirt on you. My first graders today, they were riveted to each page.

It also cracks me up when they turn in unison and look at the bully goat. There is no hiding from the judgmental side eye of a six year old.

But my favorite part is that they get to see transformation of the bully. With guidance from an adult, a bully can learn better social behaviors, and kids trust that the bully can become a friend. It teaches self advocacy as well as forgiveness.

Such a great example to use for how to treat others and the impact it can make when everyone is being kind. Everything is engaging and fun in the book, lines rhyme and illustrations are bright and colorful. Definitely a great feel good book about a best case scenario of everyone working together and being kind.

Gilroy needs a good spanking...

Yeah. Parents need to take this behavior seriously! Not actually saying that spanking is the solution, but pretending the behavior isn't happening is not a solution.

This book is clearly aimed at kids who are being bullied (walk away and tell someone...), but I find the sudden reformation of the bully unlikely. Chances are that the monster is just behaving himself until teacher is out of sight.

Little bully needs parental involvement and consistent discipline...
