School Library Journal - School Library JournalK-Gr 3-This book is extremely short, with one full-page photograph opposite each page of text, yet it may be an effective tool to help children protect themselves from bullies, better understand their behavior, and even help the bullies themselves become friendlier, nicer people. Some words such as "confrontation" and "intimidate" may overwhelm early readers, and the pronunciation guides that follow them are not always helpful, but the book will still prove useful for the intended audience.-Jerry D. Flack, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs

Dealing with Bullying based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
At a mere 24 pages, including 1 for the contents, 9 full-page photographs of kids, and two more for the glossary and index, this book is simply pitiful. The language and ideas in the 10 pages of text are so simple as to be useless, even for the youngest children. The book seems directed at Kindergarten-age students, but I have seen little evidence that kids at that age either bully or are bullied. I don¿t know what the Conflict Resolution Library was thinking when they issued this book, but they seem to have completely missed the point. I can¿t recommend this book at all. --Alyssa A. Lappen
