Weeping & Willow
Stand Up to Bullies by Kristie Mae Sawatzky

Willow has a beautiful backyard she loves to play in. There are tall oak trees, fruit trees, lilac trees and one special tree that is different from all the rest. One day, Willow hears something strange coming from her backyard. It’s the sound of someone crying! What happens next will teach Willow a powerful lesson about how words can hurt, and how important it is to see the beauty in being different. It's a lesson she'll take with her when she goes to school and faces bullies on the playground. In a lovely pairing of poetry and prose, Weeping & Willow: Stand up to Bullies gently empowers children to believe in themselves in the face of bullies.

Kristie Mae has always loved getting lost in a good story and dreamed of writing a book one day. Growing up, Kristie witnessed the damaging effects of bullying. When her first niece was born, she was inspired to write something to help her be brave and courageous in the face of conflict. That’s how Weeping & Willow: Stand up to Bullies came to be. Kristie Mae has a degree in communications from Simon Fraser University (SFU) and is from a little town in the prairies called Altona, Manitoba.
