Book Description:

“The Little Bill series by Bill Cosby; endless hours of reading and supportive material for raising well adjusted children. One thing that stood out for me as a parent, was the prefaces by Dr. Alvin F. Poussaint at the beginning of the books. It gave you the scientific perspective about the lessons that the children were going to be taught with the particular book. It was a very comprehensive series.”—Rosheena Beek, author Mommy Says!

This easy-to-read story about peer pressure by comedian and storyteller Bill Cosby is now a Scholastic Reader!

Michael Reilly has introduced a new game to Little Bill and his friends. You get twelve chances to say something mean to another kid—and whoever comes up with the biggest insult is the winner.

Insults start flying: “Jose hops with the frogs in science lab!” “Andrew eats frogs for dinner!” “Little Bill shoots baskets like a girl!”

Little Bill tries to think of really mean things to say in retaliation. But dad teaches him a strategy that enables Little Bill to save face while remaining the nice kid that he really is!
