Bully - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Insight Editions.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Synopsis:

It's never too early to make children aware of behaviors they will likely deal with in their young lives. Bully is for them to read alone or with an adult, to better understand intimidating interactions with their peers.

This book covers all the sorts of bullying your child may encounter-physical, emotional, and cyber. Bullying is a reality of our times, and this book's straight-talk, accessible approach to the topic encourages kids to open up about their experiences. With colorful drawings, fold-outs, and flaps, here is an interactive, fun way get the conversation started. Diary pages at the end to keep a record of incidents along with positive suggestions for coping make Bully a great first step in handling a difficult situation.

My Review:

Children of all ages usually go through being a bully or being bullied. It's a sad situation that needs addressed and stopped. Until that happens, adults can arm children with information on what a bully is and how a bully acts.

Bully is a hardcover, lift-the-flap book that helps young children understand aspects of a bully and helps them realize that they are not alone. It also tells them the steps they should take if they feel they are being bullied. The back of the book has a section called "My Bully Diary" where kids can write down the date and details of what happened if they are bullied. While I think it's great for children to write down the details, I also think they should be encouraged to also talk to adults about those situations. Bully, a book for younger children, is a good start to teaching kids early about what a bully is and how to stand up for themselves.
