Kid Drama 101

Matthew and Tilly

My students have plenty of drama: the, “I’m NOT your friend anymore!!!” type of drama (often in spite of the fact that they were BFFs ten second ago).

For those who could use a refresher with, “I’m sorry” and, “I forgive you” Matthew and Tilly deliver the goods: but not before having a refreshingly authentic, “You’re so stupid!” type of argument in the course of their day. They end up playing alone; and find out that it’s not much fun.

I love that Beth Peck painted a realistic urban setting complete with small local shops, graffiti and houses stacked up against each other to illustrate this multiracial message about conflict that so many need to hear.
