Summary This reference provides important information teachers and school staff need to know concerning bullies, their targets, and bystanders. It is unique in that it discusses titles appropriate for kindergarten teachers up to high school teachers. Picture books are often used at many levels to introduce a unit, so these appeal to all teachers. Counselors can also use some of these books as bibliography in their work. For each title, there is an in-depth summary, activities, and quotes from the book for students to discuss. Annotation. Noted expert on bullying and English teacher, Bott hand-picked this selection of 40 books to use to successfully address the kinds of bullying behavior that occur at a particular age. Arranged by grade level (from K-12), chapters describe particular types of bullying and offer summaries and annotations, reviews and evaluations with quotations that illustrate themes in each. Activities and questions for discussion make this a particularly useful resource for the home, school, or public library.
