    1. Lakota the largest wolf in his pack is also the "omega," bottom level in a wolf pack. Jim and Jamie Dutcher tell the amazing, true story of Lakota and his pack from their youngest days as pups. Using closeup handsome photographs and descriptive clear prose, "Lakota whimpers and drops to the ground, as low as he can go, waiting timidly for the wolves to retreat," make the story of the wolf pack come alive. From the beginning Kamots is confident and fearless, while his brother Lakota remains timid [...]

    2. Filled with beautiful full-page photographs showing how beautiful wolves are, this book tells the story of Lakota, an omega wolf that was bullied by all the other wolves in his pack until another wolf stepped in to prevent that from happening. Matsi intercedes when the others try to nip or pile on Lakota, and eventually they stop. The authors tell the story of Lakota as a reminder that bullying doesn't have to be something that is tolerated, and one act of kindness can make all the difference in [...]

    3. A National Geographic Kids book, this tells the “Incredible True Story of a Wolf Who Braved Bullying”.  It’s a sweet, touching story of Lakota who becomes the omega wolf in his pack, but who is befriended by Matsi, the beta wolf, or second in command wolf.  It’s an interesting, well-done book researched and written by two people who set up camp close to Lakota’s pack and interacted with them in order to observe them closely

    4. Review Copy: Final copy from publisherThis book is filled with wonderful photographs of a wolf pack and their day to day interactions. I understand that they were trying to create a story line that shows how to stand up to a bully and not be a bystander. It seemed a little awkward. Yes, wolves are a social crew like people, but they aren't people. It's not exactly a mirror of human behavior. It mostly works, but it seems a little forced to push the topic of bullying in there. It doesn't ruin the [...]

    5. The focus was a bit difficult for me to follow; this was a book about a "wolf who braved bullying" but in the end the authors mentioned that "he taught us just how important the omega role is in a wolf's world." If this is normal/necessary behavior, then is bullying in itself to be considered normal? Or can we even use the same word/context/denotation for different species?I am thinking muchly about this (maybe too muchly).Anyway, the illustrations were impressive, though I struggled to pick out [...]

    6. Gentle Lakota is always getting picked on by the other wolves, until one brave pack-mate stands up to the bullies and becomes his friend. This touching, true story is based on the authors' observations of life among a pack of wolves in Idaho, and is sure to inspire many important conversations about conservation, what humans can learn from animals, and social behavior.

    7. When I bought this one I was really hyped until I got it an saw it was like a childrens book seriously? Only pictures and like one or two sentences Naah next time I need to do my research beforehand :'D

    8. Excellent book for younger readers with gorgeous photographs. The interesting details of the pack's interactions are nicely done for younger children. The issue of bullying has clear connections to human behaviors.

    9. Amazing true story of a wolf pack that has social dynamics very similar to those of humans; I love that this shows how bullying occurs even in nature, and that one being can stop it. Gorgeous photographs; kids will love this.

    10. A gentle way to introduce kids to the concept of bullying and the power of friendship. Beautiful, frame-able photographs and interesting info in the back.I would recommend for any animal lover!

    11. I think my teachers and I are going to love reading this to our students. What a fun non fiction resource to address bullying.

    12. 3.5 Great photographs. Insight into pack behavior. Good back matter on wolves including map and further resources.
