Top 10: Best Picture and Chapter Books That Deal with Bullies

I witnessed this during the wait time before the drop off. Read more…

While this is a dense book full of case studies and tragic stories of cyberbullying, it would be most helpful as a handbook for someone who child is being cyberbullied OR someone studying or perhaps crafting guidelines on do’s and don’ts of internet communication and bullying.

Have We Gone Too Far with New Anti-Bullying Law?

Girl Bullying: The Hundred Dresses by Estes (grades 3-5th)

Best Chapter Book on Girl Bullying Ever!

My oldest’s teacher recommended this book to me when my daughter was in 3rd grade. There had been a history of not-so-nice girl bullying since Kindergarten but by 3rd grade, it was totally out of hand. The teacher thought this would be an especially good book for my daughter’s book club, and we, the moms, talked about doing a Mother and Daughter book club to model discussion around this book but we never pulled it off.
