How to Handle Bullies, Teasers and Other Meanies : A Book That Takes the Nuisance Out of Name Calling and Other Nonsenseby Kate Cohen-Posey, Betsy A. Lampe (Illustrator). Paperback (November 1995)
From Booklist - Gr. 4^-7. The fill-in-the-blank section may cause a few problems, but consider purchasing this anyway. It is one of a very few books that puts a practical spin on the subject. It doesn't consider bullies who shove and kick, but it has got some useful tips on how kids can use verbal techniques to turn a bully's slurs inside out. It is a bit of a stretch to think kids this age will want to start an anti-meanness club, and it's difficult to fully accept the author's suggestion that taking the sting out of bullies' words may help bullies see the error of their ways. But this is certainly a place to start when fighting back seems in order, with the ideas and the wordplays recommended giving victims just the edge they may need to begin to recoup their self-esteem.

Childhood Bullying and Teasing : What School Personnel, Other Professionals, and Parents Can Doby Dorothea M. Ross (Paperback - June 1996)
Reviewer: firstname.lastname@example.org from Youghal, Co.Cork , Ireland
This is a "must" if you are interested in this topic. I have read several books on bullying - this is by far the best and should be in every school library. It is intelligent, easily read, full of useful information and well reasoned . Many books on bullying concentrate on the psychological aspect as unfortunately most of the authors come from this field of study. However most teachers, to use Holt's expression want to know "what do I do Monday". Ross tells us. She is worth listening to. Buy this book! To the author I say well done, I have suggested to all Irish Headmasters to buy your book. I hope they do!
