A Bug and a Wish (conflict resolution and problem solving)

I use A Bug and a Wish to teach elementary students to problem solve using I-Statements.  The I-Statements are replaced by saying "It BUGS me when you tease me, and I WISH you would stop.

Description from Amazon:  When Tyler is teased by the other boys, his good friend, Danae, encourages him to give the boys A Bug and a Wish.  When Tyler finds a ladybug and a dandelion seed, he is convinced that this is what Danae means.  As his friends help him to learn the true meaning of her advice, Tyler soon discovers the solution to his problem.
