Gold Star Award Winner! When I saw this book being offered for review, I knew I had to have it. I teach fifth grade, and have had a lot of problems with bullying in my classroom. Once I received CONFESSIONS OF A FORMER BULLY, I read it in one sitting (although it is really short, so that isn't hard). I then read it to my class. Katie is a bully who gets called out on it by her principal and her parents. She has to face the consequences of her actions, and she decides to write this book to help others in the same situation. The story is written in a simple way that elementary students can understand. It doesn't pull any punches, but states both how it feels to be bullied and to be the bully. It also gives definite ways to defuse a bully, which I believe that my students will avail themselves of. This is an important book to be used by teachers, administrators, counselors, and parents. Bullying is destroying many children today, and we need as many tools as we can get. No one should ever be bullied, and everyone needs to know how to combat it.Was this review helpful?
