A Unique & Different Approach To Child Bullying: “Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You”


I was so pleased to see this review of “Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” yesterday! 🙂

Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” by Christina Engela celebrates the concept of diversity and how precious every child is.

This book is about intolerance, diversity, and bullying and encourages readers to accept everyone, irrespective of their differences based on gender, race, and color. The book also emphasizes being compassionate to everyone, regardless of their color, status, and gender.

Bullying and intolerance are relevant topics in today’s times and this book is good for read-aloud sessions in classrooms to help children be more tolerant and compassionate towards others. The illustrations lend clarity to the concept and help readers connect with the author’s words.

The author’s approach to the subject is unique and different, and she makes the book appealing to children with the help of colorful illustrations. It is a good book to teach children to be kind and compassionate. 5 stars” – Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite, Oct 17, 2019

“Other Kids” – A Children’s Book Against Bullying


Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” – a children’s book about bullying, by Christina Engela (illustrations by Amanda M. Lyons).
Many kids today face bullying from their peers. Day after day we see tragic news of children who face bullying, where children die, commit suicide, or are seriously injured, either physically or psychologically. Sadly, the biggest lie schools can tell is ‘bullying is not tolerated here’, because as long as the underlying causes of bullying are not addressed, bullying will occur to some degree.

A Week Of Bullying Achieves …Nothing


Good morning friends, fans (and critics) 🙂

I hope you all had a great weekend as I did!

Over the past week some of my posts on Facebook and the page for my children’s book were bombarded by trolls who spewed their hatred for LGBT people – and me for championing their cause, using a warped, skewed version of Christianity (Dominionism) as a justification for their hate, incitement to kill or otherwise harm them.

Adult Homophobes Bully Author Of Anti-bullying Kids Book, Fail To Notice Irony


I recently published “Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You” – a book against bullying.
It’s pretty ironic when a homophobe makes hateful posts intended to intimidate, threaten and insult – on a Facebook page about a book which addresses the topic of bullying! 😛 LMAO!
It says a lot – about the mentality of bullies – as well as the very real need for something to be done about bullies!
Fortunately there exist safeguards on this social media platform that allow us to block, ban and report such wannabe online bullies who try to flex their muscles and bombard people they detest with messages of outright hate!

About Amy – A frank discussion about internet bullying, identity politics and the Facebook dictatorship.


Amy Mah (also known as Lady Amelia Mah) is well known on Facebook and also throughout the Vampyre Community (as well as in various others, including the Otherkin, Therian, Occult, Demonkin communities, and several anime and Goth groups etc.) and for a variety of different reasons. As a writer needing to research various different characters and backgrounds and identities with which to enrich my story telling, I can certainly understand why.

It is no secret that in the course of my own research – both as a writer as well as a researcher for groups such a the Alternative Religions Forum (ARF) I have entered and in some cases participated in various similar online communities – one of which where I met Amy, among many other very interesting people! Amy is indeed virtually everywhere on Facebook. More
