For The Anti-Bullying and Teasing Book: Teachers' Choice Award

Praise for The Anti-Bullying and Teasing Book:

"The Anti-Bullying and Teasing Book ... provides ways and means to combat this classroom problem."

--Publisher's Weekly

"Expert authors Barbara Spring, Merle Froschl, and Blythe Hinitz have written an exceptional guide that encourages tolerance and kindness among preschoolers. Topics and activity themes include environment, family involvement, community, feelings, friendship, and teasing and bullying."

--Children's Ministry

"...A positive minded, extremely practical, 'must have' for anyone charged with fostering safety and harmony among groups of preschool children. Very highly recommended reading for school faculty and administration."

--Wisconsin Bookwatch

"Research and practical experiences on the topic of bullying have indicated a great need for intervention by educators. The book cites a study which indicated that 71 percent of the time, the people in charge were uninvolved although they were present. This book is a valuable aid in changing that unfortunate picture. The activities in this book were carefully researched and pilot tested by experienced educators. It is highly recommended that educators study the introduction, how to use the guide, tips for being sure children understand the vocabulary and concepts, the carefully selected list of websites and children's books, etc. The violence in older children usually has its beginnings in the early years. This book offers hope for having a positive effect before the patterns of violence become firmly established."
