A Bully Goat has taken over the hallways of McGruff Elementary Schoolâ€¦
Billy the Baaadly Behaving Bully Goat is a story, written in lighthearted rhyming verse, about a young goat named Billy who constantly picks on the other â€śkidsâ€ť in his class. From stealing their lunch money to pulling their hair on the playground, Billy is making life miserable for his primary grade peers. When his parents realize that all of their own methods to stop their son's unacceptable behavior have failed, they seek help from "The Wise Old Goat," a certified Goat Therapist. With a little bit of magic dust, some common sense, and family support, a brilliant plan is initiated to cure Billy of his bullying ways.
By describing the circumstances and feelings associated with bullying, Billy the Baaadly Behaving Bully Goat provides children with the opportunity to identify bullying behavior, share their personal Â Â experiences with bullying (either as an intimidator, a victim, or a witness), and discuss strategies for dealing with peer-related verbal or physical aggression.
