Bully - Patricia Polacco

Bully is a great book to use during the first few days of school for grades first-fifth. This book is about young students who want to be accepted in school and online bullying takes place during this adjustment of a girl moving to a new school. Online bullying occurs more than people think, so I think it is a very important topic to cover in your classrooms. An idea to go along with this book is for students to identify the theme and the message of the story. Students would enjoy acting out the book to be able to fully grasp the effect it can have on students.

The Juice Box Bully
The Juice Box Bully: Empowering Kids to Stand Up For Others - Bob Sornson,Maria Dismondy,Kim Shaw

Pete starts at a new school and because of his past experiences he believes that he needs to show authority to the others and bully them. He quickly realizes that this new school has a no bully policy and his behavior is not going to be tolerated. He tried to fight back and bully more after he was confronted but it did not go well for him. He was confronted again by the entire group and explained to them why he had been acting the way he was. They talked it out and at the end everyone was forgiven and Pete was happy to be there. 

This book could be read at the beginning of the year to address the topic of bullying. Have the students write about if they were ever put into that situation what would they do? Also, the students could work with the teacher and come up with their own saying to do away with bullying if and when it happens.

Confront Your Fears.
Bully B.E.A.N.S. - Julia Cook

This colorful book takes a spin on ways to give children confidence. Bobbette, the school bully picks on everyone, especially, Winston. One classmate learns the reasoning behind Bobbette's mean behaviors and receives advice from her mom to chew a bully bean and confront this bully. In a twist of events, Bobbette befriends her classmates and they all learn to get along. This book would be great to use at the beginning of the year to help with anti-bullying education. Some great activities for this book would be to make a class poster and write ways to deal with bullies, allow students to take "bully beans" (jelly beans) and for every bean they get, they will have to come up with a way to deal with bullies.

Daphne's Book by Mary Downing Hahn
Daphne's Book - Mary Downing Hahn

When I first read this book, I must have been a pre teen or in my early teenage years. I remember enjoying the book, but I doubt I fully grasped everything in the story. When I was younger, I might have been on Daphne and Hope's side, thinking Jessica should keep their secret, but as an adult, I know how wrong that would be.

I loved the imagination the girls showed in this story as they wrote their book and how they let the younger sister play with them and didn't shun her, as big sisters sometimes do. I believe the story handled bullying well, and Jessica and Daphne's reactions to it were realistic. I also think it handled the mental decline of the grandmother well, though I have no personal experiences with it to know if it was a correct representation.

Some of the words and actions of the grandmother toward Daphne and Hope broke me. I can understand why Jessica was terrified of her and also cringed every time the grandmother and Jessica interacted. As a child reading this, I probably would have disliked the grandmother as I wouldn't fully understand about her illness, but as an adult, I just feel sorrow and fear to know her condition is what happens to some of us as we age. It is sad, but a fact of life.

I do feel like the ending was a bit rushed. I wish there were more at the end, showing us how everyone is a few weeks, months, or even years down the road. Did Jessica keep in contact with them? Did they ever see their dream come true of being a writer/illustrator team? Did Jessica ever find her missing mouse?

Over all, I think this was a wonderful book and I hope many people of all ages get to enjoy it.
