The Bullies of Books

Bullies are a bit of a hot topic right now. While adults once brushed off hostile schoolyard interactions as a normal part of childhood, we’re now beginning to realize the gravity of these situations. Bullying can lead to serious anxiety and depression, not to mention long-term behavioral problems that last well into adulthood. To educate my children (and myself), I searched for books that examined a range of bullying behavior. Hopefully, after a few trips to the library, my children will have a better understanding of the complicated roles bullies can play and find themselves more prepared to overcome the challenge should they find themselves in a situation.
