Although October is winding down, it’s still important to remember that it’s Anti-Bullying Awareness month. I’m a firm believer in anti-bullying campaigns. Is there anyone who is pro-bullying? If so, I want nothing to do with them.
But I ramble. Here’s an anti-bullying book for the littles. It’s actually a series of books along with items that can be used for a school curriculum: a cd, wristbands, bookmarks, word charts, flash cards (yay!), etc.
In the first book, we meet Tanner, he thinks everything is cool. Except bullying. Bullying is not cool. Neither are bad words or being rude. During the rest of the book, Tanner illustrates ways to be cool, by using good manners, helping people, being polite, etc.
The book is a great way to teach self-respect and respect for others. Little ones will get it AND the characters inside the book are a good diverse representation!
BTW I ADORE their slogan: Social Skills that break the cycle of bullying by redefining cool.
SO MUCH AWESOME.

Teachers, get you some of this!
