Bobby's Story is about courage and the power inside all of us.  The story is based on unpleasant events that occurred many years ago in the author's own life.  The character, Bobby, is constantly reminded of his grandfather's powerful words of life, "Wrong is wrong - no matter how many people do it, and that it only takes one person to speak out for what is right - The Power of One!"  After Bobby's parents lose everything, including their jobs, their home, and their dreams, his family is forced to leave all their family and friends behind.  They move to the city with hopes of finding jobs and starting over.  For Bobby, the struggle is about acceptance, not only from his new friends, but his new life.  He needs to reach inside himself to find the inner strength necessary to make new friends, live in poverty, and stand up to the red-haired bully.

Trudy Ludwig delivers a story about real kids and real situations occurring everyday.  In this book, Charlie, Jack's friend, has learned that one magic word can get him out of almost any jam.  If you get caught, just say you're sorry.  Even though it makes Jack feel bad, Charlie's flip and insincere apologies get by most people until Charlie ruins a classmate's science fair project and Jack stands by to watch.  Jack and Charlie learn their lesson when a teacher makes them prove their apology by actually doing something.  The book is great for motivating children to think the sincerity of their words when making apologies or in their interactions with friends; but it also encourages adults to keep kids accountable for the authenticity of their words.
