How to Combat Bullying
The Bullying Breakthrough: Real Help for Parents and Teachers of the Bullied, Bystanders, and Bullies - Jonathan McKee

“The Bullying Breakthrough” packs a lot of information into a small book, making it a good resource that is easy to carry around. My only real complaint is that I thought there should be more of a Christian influence and viewpoint throughout the book; however, this does serve to make it applicable to a wide range of people regardless of religious affiliation or lack thereof. The subtitle defines the target audience as parents and teachers, and the focus is on children, but I felt that the principles put forth here could be generalized for adults as well. It seems that bullying is ubiquitous and that while we should certainly aim to eradicate it at schools, those bullies grow up and sometimes continue to exhibit bullying behavior. Society is becoming increasingly more intolerant, and much of this narrow-mindedness mirrors childhood bullying, just at an “adult” level.

As someone who was bullied as a kid and whose son was bullied, Jonathan McKee is uniquely positioned to offer insight into the issue. He aptly notes that “[p]ain seems to be the common denominator all around. Bullied, bully, bystander…hurt isn’t partial.” He defines bullying as an aggressive, repeated behavior that involves a power play and goes on to discuss the perspective of each group—bullied, bullies, bystanders—and how to reach out to them, which I thought was very perceptive. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter are helpful for facilitating conversation and encouraging action. One of the biggest take-aways is listening to kids and noticing any behaviors that could indicate bullying of some kind. Another major point was the culpability of social media in cyberbullying and causing isolation among kids. The stories include many types of bullying, from the physical to the emotional to that which occurs on social media, and they are heartbreaking but not surprising, which is why things need to change. Fittingly, the last segment of the book is devoted to solutions for those being bullied and for the authority figures in such situations and how to help schools deal with and prevent bullying. Although not a light read by any stretch of the imagination, this is a very necessary and timely resource for anyone who has been bullied, has witness bullying, or has even been a bully themselves, and especially for those who wish to combat bullying.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

A Kiss Goodbye
A Kiss Goodbye - Audrey Penn,Barbara Leonard Gibson

This is another book my mom use to read to me as a little girl. She specially read this book to me when we had to move and change schools. This book is about a young racoon  named Chester who is forced to move from his home due to deforestation and into a new home. The text displays the obstacles Chester encounters while saying goodbye to his home. The book ends with chester loving his new home and making new friends.  This book could be used in a PreK-2nd grade classroom. The teacher could have new students read the book and talk about their thoughts on their new school or teachers might even read this to a group of children who transitioned from elementary to intermediate school.

Llama Llama Red Pajama - Anna Dewdney

Llama drama ensues as Baby Llama whimpers and whines during bedtime. Mama Llama returns to make things right and help Baby Llama have a good night.

 

A great book for kindergarteners to read aloud, with repetitive phrases and rhyming words.

The Kissing Hand
The Kissing Hand (Chester the Raccoon - Nancy M. Leak,Ruth E. Harper,Audrey Penn

I love love love this book! My mom use to read this book to me when I was a little girl. The book is about a young raccoon named Chester that is nervous about starting school. His mother kisses his palm and tells him that "whenever you feel lonely and need a little loving from home, just press your hand to your cheek and think, 'Mommy loves you. Mommy loves you." This book would be great to read to your class on the first day of school. It allows the students to make book to self connections. You may also add an activity at the end of the read where the students get to trace their on hand draw a heart in the middle of their palm to connect with the book and fully comprehend the text. Then they may place the hands where they are visible to the class as a reminder of love from home.
