About the Book
Bullies come in all shapes, sizes, and ages. Just as varied are the different forms of bullying, which can range from familiar playground teasing to cyberbullying to dangerous physical actions. In Say No to Bullying, Louise Spilsbury tackles this sensitive topic in a format especially for kids. Inside this engaging, illustrated book she covers:

  • The basics of bullying, from the signs to the different types
  • The reasons people bully, including guidance for kids who bully others
  • How to deal with and prevent bullying and getting help to make it stop
  • What to do when adults are bullies

Illustrator, Mike Gordon's engaging images convey the body language and emotion needed for this sensitive topic. Chapters include featured facts about bullying, tips for kids on keeping safe, and advice for boosting confidence and self-esteem. A quiz at the end of the book tests what kids have learned. Also includes a list of books, hotlines, and websites where kids can get more help and advice.

My Take on the Book
This was a full spectrum book that explores all aspects of bullying and how to deal with this personally. Written especially for kids, I loved the language and how it allows the child to see the different types of bullying and how to deal with this and who can help. I appreciated the different "tips" shared in the book as they were practical and relevant for any child reading this. On top of this, the book is a great resource for any family, but also for any teacher as the messages shared in this are so important for all kids to understand and take to heart! This is an important book with valuable resources shared throughout the book. It is an important read and one I would highly recommend for all to read together!
