Classroom Bullying Prevention, Pre-K–4th Grade: Children’s Books, Lesson Plans, and Activities provides strategies to deter and prevent bullying—a serious and widespread social problem that starts early and causes great harm to not only the victims but also the bullies themselves.
The book’s content and the included lesson plans are specifically designed to supplement school-wide efforts to reduce and eliminate bullying. The lesson plans enable students to understand the importance of environments where everyone feels welcomed, valued, and respected. Supplemented by creative illustrations and summarized tables of key information, the book will be helpful to community and school librarians, elementary school teachers, and paraprofessionals serving pre-K through 4th grade students. Additionally, school-based mental health professionals such as school counselors, psychologists, and social workers can utilize the book’s resources to teach social skills in classrooms and group counseling sessions.
