'Say Something' should be in every classroom, and in everyone's library. With uncomplicated text and beautiful pictures, a lesson is taught about bullying - that it happens to anyone, and that it can be deflected by anyone. Even the littlest child has the power to stop it. Peggy Moss gets the message across and the message stays with you. There is even a list of ways anyone can make a difference at the end of the book. What a great idea!

Bullying is a sad but common part of everyone's youth. We wanted to find a book that would help our kids learn to deal with it and ensure that they were not the ones doing the bullying. Peggy Moss has done a great job of this with a great story and creative illustration!

Moss has done an exquisite job of presenting a highly accessible story that is also rich with meaning. Three types of characters inhabit the pages of this book- victim, bully and bystander. What child has not experienced being one, two or even three of those types in his/her own life? Children will relate to the events in the story in a very personal way, and because of this, Say Something provides rich fodder for discussion about respect and responsibility. I highly recommend this book for home and classroom.

I am so pleased with this book -- it is one of my daughter's favorites! Finally a book that really speaks with a child's voice to the pain and feelings of bullying, and encourages children to take action in tough school situations. My daughter actually brought this book to her first grade class, and the teacher was pleased to share this message of empowerment with all the kids. What seems to work is that the message is subtle -- each child can take away their own understanding of how to keep bullies away from their friends. We will be looking for more from this author! Anyone who is helping their child deal with classroom bullies must have this book!

At this school, there are some children who push and tease and bully. Sometimes the hurt other kids by just ignoring them. The girl in this story sees it happening, but she would never do these mean things herself. Then one day something happens that shows her that being a silent bystander isn't enough. Will she take some steps on her own to help another kid? Bright, fluid, realistic watercolors illustrate the story, set in a school with lots of diversity. Resources at the end of this book will help parents and children talk about teasing and bullying and find ways to stop it at school. One child at a time can help change a school. (excerpt from inside cover). In the book, Say Something by Peggy Moss, a child learns a lesson about bullying and teasing the hard way. She isn't willing to say something when she sees it happening to kids all around her at school and on the bus but when it happens to her, she suddenly views it differently. This is a great book for any parent to read, especially now when this subject is happening to either our own kids or kids we know. This book helps kids realize that they can do something to help and that this type of behavior shouldn't happen to anyone. I can't think of a better way to discuss this subject with our kids than this wonderfully illustrated story that puts it in a way that hits home with our kids. I received this wonderful book, compliments of Tilbury Publishing House for my honest review and think no home with kids should be without this book. Great for youth groups at church, day care, and schools I can definitely see this as a great way to discuss this topic to our children and those we know. This book rates a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and has a place in our permanent library!

I have taught this book to kindergarteners through 5th graders... the simple sentence structure leads to discussion on each page according to their developmental level.
