Amos Faces His Bully

About the Book:

Author: Cheryl C. Malandrinos
Publisher: Guardian Angel Publishing
Pages: 20
Genre: Christian children's picture book


Amos is targeted by the town bully because he is so small. When word reaches Amos of his friend David's battle with Goliath, he thinks back to what David told him about putting his faith in God's protection. Perhaps the same God can help Amos face his bully too.

My Review

I have enjoyed every book that author, Cheryl Malandrinos had written. Each book tells a good lesson not just for young readers. Example: If you have faith in God, you are stronger.

Amos was constantly getting bullied from the other boys. Yet, his good friend, David came to his rescue. David may be older but he helped Amos realize that you don't have to be older, taller, or even bigger then someone else to be stronger. Once, Amos learned this and had faith in God, he was able to stand up to the other boys.

Amos Faces His Bully is a wonderful read for young readers. The illustrations were great too.

Book Excerpt:

Amos clutched his knees to his chest. Sitting in the dirt, he blinked to keep the tears from spilling down his cheeks.

Nathaniel and the other neighborhood boys marched around, taunting him.

“Are you going to cry now, baby?” Nathaniel balled his hands into fists and pretended to rub his eyes.

“I’m not crying,” ten-year-old Amos said with a sniffle. He stood and brushed the dirt off his clothes.

“I bet you’re the biggest cry baby in all of Bethlehem,” said Nathaniel.

The boys pushed him back and forth chanting, “Cry baby, cry baby.”
