I work in a school...in the special ed. department. I spend a lot of time with a regular ed. 1st grade classroom. Recently, we've had a lot of issues regarding the teasing of others (not just the children in my room, but some in theirs as well)...pointing out differences that are seen as flaws and/or bullying...at a first grade level (i.e. "You're a brat." "Well, your sweatshirt is ugly.").

I'm looking for a book or two that might help us to address this issue and open up communication regarding how to treat others with respect and compassion. I have several books about children with special needs...but, none that deal specifically with the inappropriate teasing of those children (as well as others).

Any suggestions?

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 1077 comments I see you're specifically asking for picture books and the other thread covers all books, but there must be some picture books in there.

Thank-you, Lisa!!! I didn't see that thread! I'm sure I'll find something in there that will be relevant and educational to the children I work with!

Seeing as the other thread is gone, I'd like to recommend Strawberry Girl. I read it years ago and liked it....

EDIT: It turns out that's not the book I meant to mention--I just remember a book w. a similar title.

Hmm. There was some bullying in Lenski's book, so it still fits. There's also a lot of bullying, and revenge, in Middle School: How I Survived Bullies, Broccoli, and Snake Hill which I just finished but haven't reviewed yet.
