This event will feature the book “The Rocky Road to Bullying” starring Rocky the Rhino, who is teased because he has not yet grown his horn yet. Luckily, he will learn that true friends like him just the way he is. After reading the book and talking about ways to handle bullying in a positive way, the children will get a visit from Rocky the Rhino himself! Be sure to ask Rocky about his ARMOR program, which equips children how to assess, avoid and if necessary defend themselves from bullies and predators.

Robin's birthday is all bad and once she is tired of all those things she decides to wish to be someone else not knowing what could happen to her. she wakes up as another girl in england named fiona walker she then wants to go home but doent know how she then knows there is a whole network of wishers just like her and all of them help each other to return to their normal body. I liked this book because it had alot of adventure and it was pretty cool how robin tured to fiona. it was pretty confusing because one girl was in another body and the other body was in another girl. but the book is still pretty good.
