Prevention of Bullying
Jane Brody’s Column “A Bully’s Future, From Hard Life to Hard Time”
by Ross Walker, Australia
Schoolyard pranks and bullying, heroes and villains – all wrapped up in an adventurous tale bound together by father and son. Recommended especially for boys 8+.
The Adventures of Theodore Burke
Circus by L’Tanya Leone
This is a thoroughly delightful book, suitable for the upper elementary to adolescent reader. It is science fiction, adventure and imagination gone a little wild. The writing is authentic and riveting. The author uses a narrator who pops in from time to time as a powerful device that creates tension and keeps the reader moving along. It is not obviously about bullies, but develops a consistent theme about how young people treat each other.
This totally charming new series is sure to be read again and again. Written by Nancy Nolan and Illustrated by Kathryn Scadden, they are a welcome addition for parents and schools. Visit their site: Mr. Munson’s ITvice
