A Picture Book to Empower Bystanders

good friend

Heart Eyes: Beth and the Bullies addresses the growing evidence that bystanders are also intimidated by bullies, rendering some of them fearful of reporting bullying. Parents and educators will find this book helpful when teaching bystanders how they can create a safer place. The central character, Beth, sees others differently. With her heart eyes she notices the pain and potential in children who are bullied. Her story will inspire readers to find creative, non-confrontational solutions to bullying.

The book includes follow-up questions adults can use to guide discussions. The author, Vicki Chandler, shares the collective frustration about bullying as a parent (her son has ADHD and was bullied) as an adjunct professor (teaching special education courses at Cairn University), and as a former school administrator, special education teacher, and classroom teacher.

Find out more about this series by visiting the Heart Eyes website. There you’ll find examples of the phenomenal pictures done by the illustrator, Ryan Jackson, who is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design.

WONDER, by R.J. Palacio - You can't blend in when you were born to stand out


Educator Guide: Teaching WONDER with Trudy Ludwig

August Pullman was born with a facial deformity that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. WONDER by R.J. Palacio begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness"—indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Pledge To Choose Kind

10 Year Old Singer, Shyanne Wilson Shares the Proceeds From Her Song “Get A Life”

Shyanne writes

"I know what it's like to wake up and dread facing the day, knowing I would be made fun of and hurt.  I'm lucky that my parents could take me out of school and find a new private school for me this year, but not every kid has that opportunity.  I look forward to the day when no kid will have to wake up and feel that way ever again."
