AMOS FACES HIS BULLY
By Cheryl C. Malandrinos
I just love Children's books. They have such nice little stories with a lesson behind the story. Such a great way to enrich our children's reading time with little life lessons.
I really enjoyed reading about Amoss. He is faced with a bully that comes with his own entourage of followers. Amos' friend David comes along and rescues him from the bullies and gives Amos a few ideas on what to do to face down those that are picking on him. When Amos learns of a battle David had to fight and won he chooses to try David's thoughts on God protecting him against evil.
This is such a wonderful story first with the bullies that so many children have to face now. It gives the thought that there is nothing that can not be accomplished with faith in God.
I highly recommend this book for all the children in your life. I love the lesson behind the story and truly enjoyed the story and the illustrations.
I was given the opportunity to read this inspirational story and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.
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.

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.”
