Books About Bullying
Kids grappling with bullying can check out our list of relatable books for various ages, from picture books to tween and teen novels to memoirs. Some books deal with cyberbullying, while others portray the old-fashioned face-to-face kind. In some cases, bullying stems from racial bias or simply perceiving the other person as "different." In others, it's driven by petty jealousies and power dynamics. These stories show positive ways to stand up to bullying, and many zero in on the deep wounds that can lead a kid to engage in bullying -- and how a person can grow beyond them.
