Regarding bullying

In time for the Anti-Bullying panel discussion, EC librarians have been creating a resource list. We have put up lists in our library catalog, and will include a few highlights here. The age categories are only suggested. It is always a good idea to preview a book before recommending it to your child, especially when you are trying to address this difficult issue. These titles include a range of behaviors, from mild to really dangerous.

To see the full resource lists, click these links.

Anti-bullying for lower grades includes picture books and easy fiction as well as some non-fiction for adults.
Anti-bullying, 3-5th grade includes books from the upper elementary school library.
Anti-bullying, middle school includes books recommended for at least fifth grade and older.

Other classics in this subject area for middle school students:
The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier;
Shooter by Walter Dean Myers.
