In accordance with the San Diego Unified School District Policy A-3500, bullying (including cyberbullying), harassment or intimidation in any form are prohibited at school and school-related events (including off-campus events, school-sponsored activities, school busses, any event related to school business) or outside school hours with the intention to be carried out during any of the above.


The National Center for Educational Statistics indicates on a national level that 20-30% of children are bullied at school each year. But according to WestEd, California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), 43.4% of California students in grades 7,9 & 11 were bullied. Moreover, approximately 60 percent of students with disabilities reported being bullied and 33 percent of students who identify as LGBTQ reported being bullied.

Thank you for supporting us in everything we do. We are grateful for any donations provided as they help us with the creation of current and future projects, including the Motivated to Act Anti-Bullying Foundation. Your support means everything to us.


To encourage strong leadership skills in children grades K-3rd grade and ingrain in them the desire to treat others as equally important. In instances of witnessing bullying, discrimination, or any form of neglect or abuse, our mission is to motivate children to find and act upon effective resolutions.

Students who gain a clear understanding of what bullying and/or related negative behaviors include and how they affect others are more likely to refrain from such behaviors. Additionally, properly educated and motivated children will likely take action to stop the negative behavior when they see it. Increased awareness for all is the foundation of the Motivated to Act Anti-Bullying Foundation and its creative programs.


This book is well written and the pictures are fantastic. As a psychotherapist, I have read this to select children I see in my practice. They cannot take their eyes off the pages, fully attending (and that's good for kids with ADD) and when done, there are several new things to talk about and explore. Can't wait for the sequel to come!

I read this book out of curiosity and it sucked me in right from the beginning! Yes, the story was delightful with rich characters and attention-grabbing images, but what really struck me was the depth of the underlying message/lesson. I wish this book had been around 20 years ago when my 26-year-old daughter was young enough for me to read it to her - not only would she have loved the story, but I think it would have been a valuable tool to help get her through a bullying problem that left her fearful of going to school.

What way to engage and activate a child's mind by reading. The author and illustrator do a magical job captivating the child's imagination in this well told story about how all things don't look the same but hold the same value. It open's up a dialogue with your children as they explore and learn that different doesn't mean better. The narrative gives us a timeless message about anti-bullying and it starts at the earliest levels.
