“NEVER AGAIN WILL WE BATHE!”
a B.R.I.T.E. B.R.A.T.S. adventure
There is lots of fun to be had in the story “Never Again Will We Bathe!”. The B.R.I.T.E. B.R.A.T.S., Mitch, Maria, Jamal & Kako, while playing at Kako’s house, become very bored. They sit down and relax under Kako’s old tree in her backyard and begin to discuss whether it’s better to be clean or dirty and whether the nightly regimen of bathing and getting clean is even worth the hassle.
We find out what happens when the unexpected occurs and the B.R.I.T.E. B.R.A.T.S. become filthy dirty while playing and having fun in Kako’s backyard! There is a definite moral to this story that reinforces the importance of personal hygiene for children of all ages. This book also comes with a song and video. The book and the song can be lots of fun for both children and adults as they can sing along with the video and enjoy this adventure together. B.R.I.T.E. B.R.A.T.S. is an acronym for “Being Respectful in Today’s Environment, Brings Real Achievement Towards Success.” The group consists of four multicultural friends named Jamal, Kako, Mitch, and Maria who share life experiences from a child’s point of view.
“GOOD WORDS, BAD WORDS…DON’T SAY THAT!”
A B.R.I.T.E. B.R.A.T.S. adventure exploring the power of words
“GOOD WORDS, BAD WORDS…DON”T SAY THAT!” is a whimsical and fun look at the effect of words and how people use them. The book was written and created because many children hear and use words that are harmful to others and themselves and may sometimes speak these words not fully aware of their impact. Words that children use, as they grow and learn to communicate, can sometimes lead them down a positive or negative path in life. Words matter. Words are powerful and the essential tools of bullies.
Young, impressionable children hear all manner of words from a variety of sources including parents, friends, television, radio, online, tweets, songs and raps. It makes it very difficult for a young mind to understand that certain words that may come from these sources may have harmful effects, if and when they use them.
“GOOD WORDS, BAD WORDS… DON’T SAY THAT!” makes it clear, in a fun way, to children and also reminds adults to be mindful of the words that they use. It is our hope that children and others who read this book will agree that some words can cause pain or joy to others. Remember, be mindful of your words. “GOOD WORDS, BAD WORDS… DON’T SAY THAT!” serves as a reminder for adults and a lesson for all children. Words have power!

The B.R.I.T.E. B.R.A.T.S., Maria, Kako, and Mitch are Jamal’s best friends, they try to help him stop the bully by coming up with what they think are good ideas. However, Jamal is very afraid and can’t get up the courage to do anything that might make the bullying stop. Kako, Mitch and Maria are concerned. They see that Jamal is afraid, confused and depressed. Can they help their friend, Jamal, stop the bully’s behavior? What do you do to stop a bully? This book delves into these questions for children in an insightful, meaningful and humorous way, and strives to give them answers so that they can be prepared should something similar happen to them.
“JAMAL HAS A BULLY!” was written to help children combat bullying by teaching them that keeping it a secret is not the answer. They should immediately talk to their parents, teachers and any other persons of authority. Bullying has become a tragic problem in American society and around the world. Children and youth are especially impacted by this horror that sometimes leads to suicide. “JAMAL HAS A BULLY!” has a message for the bullied and the bully, young and old.
