Another win by Kathryn Otoshi. One is an excellent book about bullying that is told abstractly using colors and numbers as characters. It’s succinct, matter-of-fact, and relatable on a kid level. Probably one of the best anti-bullying books I’ve read—ever. It actually explains the ramifications of observing bullying and doing nothing vs. observing bullying and saying something. The concepts are clear, straightforward, and invite dialogue to make it applicable in your everyday life.
Understanding a common language about bullying, what it is and is not, and how to help gives kids phrases and contextual experience through text to keep in their back pocket for when they encounter bullies or bullying situations out in the world.
