Back Cover-=No Barnyard Bullies.jpeg

The animal kingdom is filled with timely and timeless tales that are relatable to humans. The animal family of Stella Bella’s Barnyard Adventures experiences complex encounters that challenge their integrity, individuality, and character while amplifying diverse expressions and original viewpoints to co-exist as a group. The barnyard animals address critical issues facing children including bullying, nature, power struggles, adversity, adoption, homelessness, creativity, justice, health, kindness, ethnicity, and being different through a cultural lens of hope and resolution. With visually rich illustrations, each picture book will move children to appreciate all animals while learning the lessons the natural world teaches.

There are always unexpected adventures in a barnyard. Join Stella Bella and her menagerie of adopted animals for a raucous romp through the wild kingdom.

The FIRST book in the children's picture book series of Stella Bella's Barnyard Adventures!

No Barnyard Bullies

      based on a True Story

No Barnyard Bullies ​follows a pampered piglet who lives in an apartment as she is re-homed to a barnyard filled with a variety of happy critters. Thinking that she is the Queen, she bullies the other animals until she is stopped by a tiny bunny who defends a three-legged goat from her attacks. Everyone is equal in Stella Bella's barnyard where bullies are not tolerated, and inclusivity is the paramount number one rule.

The goal of Stella Bella’s Barnyard Adventures is to instill in children wonder and awe of Mother Nature and her creatures as they participate in the escapades of the wild kingdom. Children are encouraged to love themselves exactly the way they are while living in peace and harmony with a barnyard of many colors and beliefs. Family is about whom you love and who loves you. In the series, the true tales will emerge from a variety of different animals, all with a prescription for living as better humans.

Proceeds from the sale of the books benefit the 501 c3 charity, Be the Star You Are!® empowering women, families, and youth through increased literacy and positive media messages.

"Wow! What an enriching and powerful book! This collection of essays offers something touching, inspirational, and heartwarming for anyone who takes it off the shelf.

You can read the book from cover to cover, or flip through and find the topics that resonate most at that moment in your life. This book would make a great gift, too!" Dallas Woodburn, Author
