Bullying is a serious case for kids, and that is a sensitive topic that most kids have had to deal with all their lives. There has been a great emphasis in recent times to educate young ones on bullying. Parents have started recommending bullying books that will teach children empathy, whether they’re being bullied or willing participants in it.
Educationalists have recommended these books for kids to work on their emotions and propel them to be more humane. Let’s look at some very good books that are recommended for school children for bullying.
Llama Llama and the Bully Goat by Anna Dewdney
Gilroy the Goat mocks Llama and often laughs at him and other classmates. Llama, in his defense, remembers the words of his teacher in walking away from conflict and reporting to someone else. When Llama does that, his teacher intervenes in the case, and Llama and Gilroy might get a chance to be friends. This is a good book on handling bullying.
The Bully Blockers Clun by Teresa Bateman
Lotty Racoon has her excitement about her new school, and the potential of meeting new friends cut shot when Giant Grizzly starts bullying her.
