This book is written for children aged 3 to 7 years old because good habits should be established early. Young readers will learn three fundamental lessons:
You shouldn’t be shamed or mocked. Tell an adult to have bullies blocked.
Just click the ‘X’ in the corner to make that pop-up box a goner.
Some buttons are good and some are bad so before you click check with mom or dad.
