Don’t be a Bully is a short simple book for young children, and beginner ESL readers, promoting values of anti-bullying and anti-discrimination.
This book teaches children ten important life lessons about values and the importance of treating everyone equal, no matter what race, religion, gender, or abilities. There are exercises supporting the topics at the end which can be used for classroom life lessons/health education or home school exercises.
Each lesson is introduced by an animal with a name that uses alliteration, eg Gerty Goat, Wally Walrus. These animals are a feature of Free Kids Books’ life lessons, Be Nice sight words series.
While the word “discrimination” might be a big one for young children, we think it’s a REALLY important one, and well within their grasps to learn early.
