Meet Emily. She is being bullied by a group of children at school. She describes how this makes her feel, think and act. Eventually, she finds ways to help herself and also realises that she can get help from other people - both adults and other children.
As well as the perspective of the child being bullied, this guide for children aged 7-11 portrays the view of bystanders and the bully, emphasising the difference everyone can make in a bullying situation. Based on the latest research in anti-bullying interventions and written in collaboration with leaders of the field, the book offers practical, tried-and-tested strategies for the prevention of bullying.
