My Favorite Anti-Bullying Read Alouds

Anti-bullying can be a tricky subject to teach. However your school approaches this topic, I wanted to share some amazing read alouds I have found to deal with this sensitive subject.

If you haven't had the good fortune of reading Trudy Ludwig's books, be sure to check them out anytime a social issue arises in your classroom, or even better, before they do! She is an amazing author and her books really get to the core of bullying, in all of its various forms. In fact, most of my list is comprised of her books, but their content is so varied, it will not sound like a broken record, promise!

Another author whose books are wonderful at dealing with social situations is Kathryn Otoshi, who wrote One, but also Zero and Two. Each confront a common issue that all kids can relate to.

If you're interested in covering these topics more in-depth, I recommend my Anti-Bullying Word Work for work on common vocabulary around this subject. My Interactive Health Notebook also has some wonderful flipables around bullying and positive self-esteem.

To read more about these books, simply click on any of the covers below. Each will link you directly to its page on Amazon where you can preview the inside, read the reviews, and find similar titles.

I hope this list gives you lots of ideas for read alouds for any time of year and with the variety of social situations you may experience with your students. 

Be sure to let me know of any additional titles in the comments below. I would love to add to this collection!
