PLYMOUTH â€”Â LaVille Elementary School music teacher Lisa Head recently published her first childrenâ€™s book, Calbert: The Third-Grade Cowboy. The book is a fictional story about bullying written at a second and third grade reading level.
â€śI have a son who is at that level and I told myself as I started writing that (the story) fit best at that age level,â€ť said Head, continuing, â€śIâ€™ve been a foster parent for many years and a teacher for many years. Iâ€™ve had children from both sides in my homeâ€¦both those that are bullies and those that have been bullied.â€ť
