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

This children's book talks about the very real issue of bullying in a way that child can know how to defend themselves and what to do in bullying situations. My favorite part about this book is that it promotes that a bystander has a lot more control than one may think, and that one voice to speak up may make a world of difference. I would like to use this as a group reading book if I felt like a bullying problem was occurring or even the first day to establish rules and expectations. This book also has a "bully free policy" at the end. I would like my class to come up with out own bully free policy as an activity. Great read for the first day of school! 

Grade Level- appropriate for all elementary ages

The Class from the Black Lagoon - Mike Thaler

The entire Black Lagoon series is a series that I adored growing up, and is still a fan favorite of students of everywhere. This book is about a teacher that pictures the worst of the worst class for the year, and her imagination runs wild. Always at the end of any of these series, their imagination was way worse than the real outcome. It is a great lesson to teach students to be on their best behavior. I think a great lesson would be to use this as a writing prompt of what makes a great class and a terrible class. Great also for class discussion.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? - Bill Martin Jr.,Eric Carle

This book illustrates and describes many different animals in the world by using the sentence repetitively  "Brown Bear, brown bear what do you see?" Then, the bear proceeds by describing animals and creatures around him. I think this book is a great choice for the classroom because it is extremely colorful, easy to read, descriptive, and is loved by many students everywhere. I would use this book for my classroom if we were beginning to work on nouns and say "Students, students, what do you see?' and proceed by letting the students tell me a noun they see in the classroom.

Bully B.E.A.N.S. - Julia Cook

"Bully Beans" tells the story of a multiple children being bullied by a bigger girl in their school. What makes this story interesting and different is that it not only tells the reader ideas of how to handle bullying, but it also gives the perspective of the bully itself. It also focuses on the view of the bystanders, so, this book gives the perspective from almost all angles in a bullying situation. I would use this book in my classroom to promote discussion about bullying if I felt like this was necessary.

Big Al by Andrew Clements (1997-09-01) - Andrew Clements

This book tells a story of a big fish that feels awkward and left out because of his appearance. This story is great because it is perfect for a classroom filled with diversity, and the teacher trying to encourage friendships between different types of students. I would use this book in my classroom as a group reading lesson to encourage good behavior and cooperation as a class as a whole to each other. This book also opens great discussion about anytime they have felt left out.
