Every one of us has experienced harassment in one form or another, either as a target, as a witness, or as the bully, and we all carry hidden bruises. This guide addresses the often invisible problem of bullying in the halls, offices, and classrooms of schools and will assist educators to know what to look for and what to do when they see a child being harassed. Forty four fiction books with bullying as the major theme are reviewed and discussed. They have been selected based on grade level with chapters organized in four sections: kindergarten through third grade, intermediate readers (grades 4-6), middle school readers, and more sophisticated titles for high school students. Each chapter begins with an introduction that describes the harassment most seen in each grade levels. For each title, there is an in-depth summary, activities, and quotes from the book for students to discuss. The final section provides resources for teachers, librarians, counselors, administrators, and parents. A necessary tool for teachers, staff, and educators, as well as parents.

...useful as a beginning effort in dealing with this very real and pervasive problem. School Library Journal, 5/1/2005 Superbly written and accessibly presented, The Bully In The Book And In The Classroom should be considered 'must' reading for anyone charged with the responsibility for keeping order and safety within their school populations. Wisconsin Bookwatch This excellent source will help teachers and librarians build safer and more supportive classrooms and communities...This wonderful reference is a must-have for any professional working with families and young people.
