Cluck and Fluffy by Ceasar Castro

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I love when children’s books address real-life situations that kids have to deal with. I think that it is so important to address these issues and provide the opportunity to learn and be better!

Cluck and Fluffy are an unlikely pair in this farm-yard story. Cluck is a new rabbit that has been placed in the chicken coop for a short time. The chickens are mean and shun him, making him feel like an outcast. When one chicken finally decides to befriend Cluck, they show that being mean and hurtful is not the right way to act.

I thought this was a really cute story that addresses bullying in a great way. Cluck and Fluffy’s friendship grows throughout the story. I liked that it wasn’t just Cluck and Fluffy that stand up against the bullying, but also the new chickens that arrive. They make it clear to the other chickens that being mean and exclusive is not okay.

This is a wonderful story to have in classrooms and libraries. I love the way the author chose to address bullying by using animals. I think that it will resonate with many children!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Cluck and Fluffy to young children in preschool to middle-elementary school.
