Children's Literature - Heather Welsh
The students at Niceville Elementary are working together to let bullies in the classroom, in cyberspace, and on the playground know that it is time for a change. The kids learn that the first step is speaking up for victims of verbal or physical bullying by changing their role from "bystanders" to "upstanders." They understand that telling a trusted adult when they cannot fix the problem themselves is also key. Doing so is not tattling, it is reporting—and it could save someone's life! The students are also learning that everyone needs to understand why they do the things they do. Many times, bullies do what they do for attention or because they have low self-esteem. Picking on others often makes bullies feel less insecure about themselves. Once the students understand that, it is much easier to forgive the bullies and help them change. The book gives many examples of how to respectfully stand up to bullies and cyber-bullies, help the victims recover, and get the bully to rejoin the group positively. The book concludes with a test to determine whether you have been a bully, a glossary of important terms, and a list of suggested websites. Reviewer: Heather Welsh
