Product description

Review

“My Secret Bully provides an important resource to help parents.” –Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out

“[In Just Kidding] Trudy Ludwig has not only captured the heart of boy taunting, but also the best solutions.”
–Susan Wellman, founder of The Ophelia Project

“Sorry! helps parents and educators teach children the magic transformative power of apology.” –Aaron Lazare, MD, author of On Apology

“[Trouble Talk] would be well used by school counselors or social workers to interface with a child who’s exhibiting or harmed by ‘trouble talk.’”
School Library Journal

Too Perfect sets the stage for meaningful discussions about being yourself and working to your potential, not to perfection. In our extremely competitive society, I highly recommend this book for kids and parents!”
–Barbara Z. Carlson, cofounder of Putting Family First and coauthor of Putting Family First: Successful Strategies for Reclaiming Family Life in a Hurry-up World

“Too Perfect is a much-needed primer for our children (not to mention, the children inside all of us) on why perfection is unhealthy, unproductive, and plain old unfun.”
–Courtney E. Martin, author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: The Frightening New Normalcy of Hating Your Body

“With
Too Perfect, Trudy Ludwig has hit the mark on the pitfalls of perfectionism–and shows children and their parents that we are all ‘perfect’ just the way we are.” –Jill Zimmerman Rutledge, MSW, LCSW, author of Picture Perfect: What You Need to Feel Better About Your Body

“Perfectionism isn’t a disease to be conquered; it is a self-esteem issue in need of healing.
Too Perfect shows us how we might begin to do just that.” –Thomas S. Greenspon, PhD, author of Freeing Our Families From Perfectionism and What to Do When Good Enough Isn’t Good Enough: A Guide for Kids

From the Publisher

* Afterword by Thomas S. Greenspon, PhD, author of Freeing Our Families From Perfectionism and What to Do When Good Enough Isn't Good Enough: A Guide for Kids.

Making a Difference in Kids' Lives, One Book at a Time(R)

Trudy is a nationally acclaimed speaker and an award-winning author who specializes in writing children's books that helps kids connect and engage with their peers in kind, caring ways. She has received rave reviews nationwide from educators, experts, organizations, and parents at schools and conferences around the US for her passion and compassion in addressing peer aggression and friendship issues.

An active member of the International Bullying Prevention Association, Trudy collaborates with leading US experts and organizations, including the Committee for Children, and has been featured in numerous national and regional media outlets. She has also served as content advisor for Sesame Workshop's "Good Birds Club" TV episode and as an expert panel member on Sesame Street's video series on bullying.

Trudy's books have received numerous awards and citations including the IBPA Gold Benjamin Franklin Award, the Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award, NAPPA's Gold Medal for Books, Mom's Choice Gold Awards, Moonbeam Children's Books Gold Award, and are included in the Cooperative Children's Book Center's Best of the Year Selection, ADL's "Read4Respect" Program Book Selection, NCSS-CBC Notable Social Studies Books for Young People Selection, National Crime Prevention Council's Circle of Respect Book Club Selection, Junior Library Guild Selection, School Library Journal Best Picture Books Selection, and Scholastic Instructor Recommended Back-to-School Picks.

"Because the social world of today's children is very complex and difficult to navigate, I try to include in my stories the wisdom and insights of young readers so that my books resonate with the authenticity of their life experiences and views," she says. "I also have the added pleasure of tapping into my own inner child--letting her laugh, cry, and simply breathe."
