Who else is in the story? Katy, Clayton, and Lincoln (Bully)
Where are they? Alley is at her favorite park next to the library. She visits this park every Wednesday to have lunch and meet new friends. It is a pretty fall day.
What are they doing? Alley meets Katy and Clayton and are enjoying playing together until on the shaky bridge she is unable to cross because of Lincoln who is bullying everyone he encounters.
Why are they doing that? Katy tries to convince Alley to push Lincoln out of the way while Clayton is trying to convince her to go find a grown up. Alley takes it upon herself to try to befriend this bully and Lincoln admires her kindness even though he has a bad attitude.
What happens to everyone? The friends all end up playing together on the playground and even sharing their picnic lunches. They decide to meet at the park often and to keep the playground a friendly place for everyone to enjoy.
What's your favorite part of the story? Turning to kindness in situations that are uncomfortable instead of fighting back or tattling.
