Author Peggy Creten worked for many years as a guidance counselor in a K-8 elementary school. Her books are based on her own experiences listening to students share their problems and guiding them toward solutions. Peggy hopes that her stories will encourage valuable discussions between children and parents, teachers or counselors.
Betsy Bobcat Chooses Kindness is part of Creten's Peggy Perch series. All of the Peggy Perch books will address common school-age problems including peer-pressure, bullying, decision making and conflict resolution. The next book, a story about bullying on the bus, is entitled Rosie Raccoon Finds Courage.
