Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greta Holt
This series, "Take a Stand Against Bullying," examines cyber, physical, and verbal bullying as well as social bullying. It seems designed for guided reading and group discussion. The writing is accessible, and there is enough repetition of ways to stop bullying that students can enter the book at any point to gain useful information. Chapters begin and are enhanced within by personal stories about being bullied or being a bully. While victims are given ways to empower themselves, and students are led to become proactive, bullies are addressed clearly. Chapters include the impact of bullying, definitions of bullying, and how to recognize bullying in oneself. An uncomfortable quiz is titled, "Are you a social bully?" and further resources, including websites and hotlines, are listed. A glossary of terms is presented at the end. Many pages contain multiple entry points for student interest: pictures, definitions, stories, and "think about it" sections. The medium sized paperback presents a dark, rather jagged appearance with somber colors, as befits the topic. Many pages contain photographs of students, which add to the seriousness of the subject.

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Three timely, useful, and informative titles. A one-page scenario unique to a specific type of bullying serves as an example to enlighten readers on the experience of being a target. This scenario further helps to introduce the focus of the book, followed by an explanation and definition of the type of bullying. Each chapter provides helpful advice and recommendations for ways of handling an attack. Other topics examined include the roles and impact of people present during an act of bullying, where an incident occurs, and parents and siblings as bullies. They all help readers to better understand and grasp the trauma experienced by targets. Other chapters address the fear of future attacks and the impact of these incidents on school attendance. A list of personality characteristics of bullies, physical characteristics and tendencies of those often targeted by bullies, and recommendations for actions to take when witnessing an act of bullying or being a victim help readers become empowered. Material is to the point and easy to understand. A short quiz at the conclusion of each book, "Did You Know?" text boxes with additional facts and statistics, "Think About It!" sections, an appealing layout with color photos and computer-enhanced and altered graphics, accompanied by first-person accounts, create accessible and helpful resources.—Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE
