Stinky Feet

Stinky Feet by Shelba ObertoStinky Feet is a story about Lizzy who is so excited about the first day of school! Then soon after school begins, she is faced with a problem by the name of Alexander. Alexander begins calling Lizzy names like “Stinky Feet Lizzy”. As the name-calling continues in the classroom and on the playground, it changes how Lizzy, who is usually kind-hearted, feels about school.
How does the bullying make Lizzy feel? What does she do? Why would Alexander treat Lizzy, or anyone else, this way? As Lizzy and her mom discuss Alexander’s behavior, they come up with a solution that’s worth a try. Will it be successful?
Bullying is unacceptable, but it is not a new problem. Many children will be able to relate to Lizzy as they read this book. They do not always talk freely about the bullying that occurs at school and elsewhere. Parents and teachers of children and students ages 4-8 will find reading Stinky Feet  to be a great conversation starter about name-calling and other forms of bullying.
