Book Description:

Like most kids, Michael and his friends are so excited for their first day at a new school. They have a lot of questions about what to expect, but most of all, they wonder if they’ll get to join the football team. That would be the perfect way to start the year! However, Michael soon finds out that it’s not as easy as he thinks. The team is filled with bullies, and to join, he has to become one of them. In order to be cool enough to get a spot on the football team, Michael has to start changing his behavior—for the worse! Suddenly, terrible things start happening to him. Finally, he begins to wonder: Was it all worth it?

MY REVIEW
Cool Kids is a wonderful children's book with a very important message.
The story is about Michael and his friends. They're starting at a new school and want to join the football team. But the team isn't all it's cracked up to be. So Michael decides he's going to change who he is and become more like the kids on the team so he can fit in. But his new behavior causes more problems. Michael realizes that maybe changing himself to fit in wasn't the right choice after all. 
This is a quick, easy read with lovely illustrations and a good message for kids. It shows kids that changing your behavior to try and fit it, or becoming a bully for the sake of being "cool" isn't a good thing. Don't be mean to others, especially not your friends, because it's not cool. Don't try to be someone you're not, because it will backfire, and that's not cool. Sometimes being the "cool kid" just means being yourself. 
I really enjoyed this book, and I would definitely recommend it to parents with younger readers.
5 stars!
 
 
Meet the Author:

Freeman’s first career was a third-grade schoolteacher in the Passaic School System. Teaching children is her true passion, and she incorporated this passion in her community involvement. Her second career as a real estate broker and appraiser enabled her to open her own real estate company, Prime Realty, with a partner. After thirty-five years, they sold to Coldwell Banker. She loves dogs, playing piano, telling stories, singing, dancing, and sharing wonderful examples of life’s lessons with her grandchildren. Arlene lives in Woodland Park, New Jersey. She has two sons, Dr. Ted Freeman of Long Branch, New Jersey, and Dr. Eric Freeman of Westfield, New Jersey, as well as three grandchildren: Michael, Max, and Quinn. This is her first book and maybe her third career.
