Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Leslie Wolfson
Bullies are flourishing in public schools. Cyberbullying is the latest form of it, and "bullycide" is the new catch phrase. Many people are unaware of these terms and the extent of bullying that currently goes on across the country. Worst of all, many parents and school personnel do not take bullying seriously, and think that it is a part of the ritual of growing up. Those schools that choose to tackle the problem often ineffectively target their education towards the bullies themselves. A successful anti-bullying program should reach out to all students, and one way is to include books that discuss this issue in school libraries and classrooms. In this companion to the author's The Bully in the Book and in the Classroom (Scarecrow Press, 2004/VOYA December 2004), types of bullying are broken down into sections such as Being New, Being Different; Cliques, Groups and Gangs; Cyberbullying and Cyberspace; and Body Image. Each section begins with a short explanation of what will be covered in that chapter, and then highlights "focus" books. From preschool through high school, the highlighted books tackle that particular form of bullying. Each book that is mentioned has a brief summary, topics for discussion, and quotes for reader response. Annotated bibliographies at the end of each section list other books in that category. Bott provides a valuable reference source for teachers and other school personnel, as well as parents. Reviewer: Leslie Wolfson
School Library Journal
This sequel to The Bully in the Book and the Classroom (Scarecrow, 2004) offers more than 350 annotated titles published since 2000 to create awareness of the many types of harassment and bullying. Topics include name calling, put-downs, and gossip; being new and different; body image; cliques, groups, and gangs; prejudice; homophobia; cyberbullying and cyberspace; and violence. Each chapter offers selected titles, black-and-white reproductions of book covers, bibliographic information, a brief synopsis, discussion topics, quotes to engage readers, and annotated bibliographies. The books are diverse in characters, content, and grade-level interest, and represent fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels. Bott's Web site offers more information and recently published titles. Although the text is written for educators and librarians for use in classroom settings, the information is equally helpful for parents, caregivers, and public librarians.—Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA
