And when she takes a chance and stands up to the bullies, she finds that one small girl can make a big difference.

Praise for The Smallest Girl in the Smallest Grade:
“This effective rhyming book by kiddie-rock star Roberts takes on the subjects of bullying, teasing, and excluding others… This is a serious topic given serious treatment, and it should be ideal for initiating discussions.”—Booklist
