In this latest addition to the Kissing Hand book collection, Chester Raccoon must learn to deal with another common problem of childhood: a bully at school. When Mrs. Raccoon learns that there is a bully problem at school, she decides to investigate the situation. But after seeing the bully for herself, she shares a story about a forest that was full of smooth yellow stones, and how the animals living there changed a pointy stone they found into a smooth stone so that it wouldn't hurt any tender paws. Chester, Ronny, and Cassy follow the spirit of Mrs. Raccoon's story when they next encounter the Bully. Approaching him as a group, they invite him to play, proving that the best way to get rid of an enemy is to make him or her a friend. This book encourages children to understand that many child bullies are themselves unhappy and gives readers a good example of settling differences by peaceful means. Educators will embrace this story about a positive strategy for dealing with a bully.

The numerous anti-bullying programs in schools across the United States have done little to reduce the number of reported bullying instances. One major flaw in a majority of the programs and other books on bullying is that little attention has been paid to the role of the media and popular culture in adolescents' bullying and mean girl behavior. This book addresses media role models in television, film, picture books, and the Internet in the realm of bullying and relational aggression. It highlights a significant number of portrayals with unproductive strategies that lead to poor resolutions or no resolution at all. Young viewers may learn ineffective, even dangerous, ways of handling aggressive situations. Victims may feel discouraged when they are unable to handle the situation as easily as in media portrayals. They may also feel their experiences are trivialized by comic portrayals. Entertainment programming, aimed particularly at adolescents, often portray adults as incompetent or uncaring and include mean spirited teasing. In addition, overuse of the term "bully" and defining all bad behavior as "bullying" may dilute the term and begin to trivialize the problem.

An essay about Horrible Histories explores television, genre, and the way history is coded.

You’re a teacher. You are on the front line every day with your students, and in addition to teaching academic content, you are often the first person to field any number of emotional needs your students may bring into your classroom. That domain is often left to school counselors, social workers, or psychologists, but in the absence of such professionals, or in addition to their expertise, there are simple and concrete tools you can use to help your students learn healthy coping strategies. This book is intended as a resource and is divided into four sections addressing the most common needs you may see in your classroom: grief and loss, bullying, off-task behaviors, and adoption. Each section will give you background information on the topic, practical strategies to use with students, frequently asked questions, and resources. Sample scripts are included for specific examples of conversations to have with kids.
