Bully B.E.A.N.S. teaches children how to speak up when it comes to bullying.
Bullying continues to be an ongoing problem for children everywhere. Children from every race, culture, and socioeconomic group are susceptible to bullies. Most children are unprepared for how to handle it when bullying happens to them or someone they know. Bully B.E.A.N.S helps children identify bullying, and offers clear and impactful action strategies for both targets and bystanders.
Maxine liked to pick on kids… especially Winston. Winston is the smartest kid in our whole school. Maxine made him do all of her homework and give her all of his lunch money. Maxine liked to make Winston cry… then she’d call him a crybaby.
“If you don’t do exactly what I tell you to, I’ll knock you into next week!”
Nobody liked the way Maxine treated Winston, but we were too afraid to do anything about it.
Written by bestselling author Julia Cook, Bully B.E.A.N.S. reminds children of the power of their voice and how to use it effectively when standing up against bullying.
Bullies Everywhere Are Now Stopped!
A Note From the Publisher
Book Illustrator: Tammie Lyon
"Bully B.E.A.N.S. just got a huge update. This includes new artwork, a shorter format to hold the attention of younger readers, and a change to the main character’s name.
In this story, Maxine likes to pick on kids...especially Winston, the smartest kid in the whole school. She makes him do her homework and give her his lunch money. “If you don’t do exactly what I tell you, I’ll knock you into next week!” Nobody likes the way Maxine treats Winston, but everyone is too afraid to do anything about it. That is, until one girl learns about Bully Beans and strategies for how to stand up to a bully.
I believe Julia Cook understands the issues students face in classrooms today and has a special way of teaching students the skills and strategies needed to tackle these tough topics through her books.
Bully B.E.A.N.S. not only helps students identify bullying, but it offers clear strategies that students can use whether they find themselves to be the target or a bystander. This would be a great book to add to your school or classroom library. You can even find a few activities to pair with this story on my website!"
