Books on Bullying & Giveaway!

 Bullying has become a major problem in schools today. Don't let your students be bystanders empower your students to make a difference! Addressing bullying in elementary school can be a hard task and teachers need all the resources we can get. Maria Dismondy is the author of  three amazing books about standing up to bullies: Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun, The  Juice Box Bully, and Pink Tiara Cookies for Three (coming soon!).f Maria was a teacher for 11 years and then took time off to become a writer and start a family. She has written three books about bullying and friendships with the main goal of reaching as many children as possible to make a difference. I certainly think that she has made a difference because her first book award winning Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun sold over 25,000 copies. Whoa! She is such an inspiring author and her message rings true to problems our students face everyday in school. These books are amazing to use for character education and with bucket filling books. So what are you waiting on? Go pick up a copy of her book and check out her website Maria Dismondy : Children's Book Author from Michigan. She has resources that go along with her books.
                                       

Maria contacted me earlier this week to feature her books on my website and I felt so honored! She was even nice enough to give me an extra copy of her fabulous book Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun. So because I love all my blogger followers sooo much I am going to give one lucky follower a signed copy of Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun!

  6. I like Pink Tiara and Cookies for Three. I would use this to show the students that you can include everyone in your activities and not to leave others out.
