We are so excited to announce the release of Wade's second children's book Smitty Tackles Bullying.
Smitty is one year older and a year wiser since readers last saw him. He has truly discovered his love of reading and is doing great in class and on the field, but when Smitty begins to notice his best friend Luke is skipping out on Reading Lab, he decides to investigate. What Smitty finds is that somone is bullying Luke because he isn't a strong reader! Smitty knows he needs to take action. He confronts the bully and applies his dad's saying of, "you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar." Smitty uses kindness and understanding to confront the bully, and in the end makes a new friend and finds a way to help Luke with his reading. Along the way, Smitty once again proves that reading is cool! This charming picture book is the perfect story for kids who may be dealing with bullying themselves, and proves that it isn't ok to just stand by the sidelines. Sometimes, kindness, understanding, and true friendship are the keys to tackling bullying.
The book will be on sale during Wade's Weekend at the Smitty and Friends Charity Topgolf Tournament on Friday, April 28th but you can also pre-order your copy here
