Stop Picking on Me: A First Look at Bullying by Pat Thomas, Illustrated by Lesley Harker
A First Look at Bullying explores the dynamics in relationships among children of preschool through early school age, and encourages kids to understand personal and social problems as a first step toward solving them.
Many realistic examples of well portrayed characters, children who get bullied in different ways. Picture book with full color illustrations on every page and just a few lines of text.
Written by an experienced psychotherapist and counselor, these books promote positive interactions among children, parents, and teachers. The language in each book is simple and direct, and easy for younger children to understand. This approachable picture book explores the difficult issue of bullying among children. It helps kids accept the normal fears and worries that accompany bullying, and suggests ways to resolve this upsetting experience.
The characters all change by the end of the book, learning how to deal with bullies with compassion rather than becoming bullies themselves. And they learn where to get help.
A perfect book for children who are both bullies and would-be bullies to teach them just what the effect of bullying has on other children.
Encourages conversation with parents and teachers about school life. Great for parents and teachers to red to younger children, and for older children to read themselves.
Full-color illustrations on every page. Ages 4-7. ISBN 9780750028875.
