October is National Bullying Prevention Month

Most likely, you’re already aware that October is National Bullying Prevention Month. ┬áThis is an important annual event that helps raise awareness of bullying prevention across the country. ┬áThe event was created by PACER in 2006 to encourage people to take an active role in the bullying prevention movement.

Simlilarly, on October 19th, millions of people wore purple for Spirit Day to speak out against bullying and show support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youths. Spirit Day was started in 2010 to promote tolerance after LGBT youths took their own lives.

Those who are targets of bullying and intolerant behavior can truly suffer, and sometimes it can be difficult for a child or teen to vocalize their experiences and feelings. We have compiled a list of books in the hope that the right book in the right hands may spark a conversation or help a reader feel like they are not alone. The first group of books have strong anti-bullying messages and the second group feature LGBT characters and messages about acceptance. Click on the book covers to get the full scoop. And let us know if we should add any other books to these important lists. We’d love to hear from you!
