Bullying behaviors are learned at an early age, so it is more than important than ever to reach the youngest audience and educate them on what bullying behavior is and how it is stopped. A Bully-Free Bus follows a group of young characters from Niceville Elementary School who bully each other on Bus 21. Young readers will learn about physical and verbal bullying. They will see four examples of bullying and learn how to stand up for themselves and be upstanders for others. They will also learn when to report a situation to an adult and other key advice in order to make a Bully-Free Bus! Real-life situations that children will relate to are brought to life with engaging cartoon illustrations.

World Free of Bullying - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
Brief chapters present bullying scenarios and tell beginning readers how to diffuse or resolve them. Situations. . .are realistic and age-appropriate for the intended audience. The same “Bully Test” is included at the end of each book to help students become aware of and avoid bullying behavior. Ostrom’s vividly colored cartoon-style illustrations depict a diverse group of children engaged in the scenarios and they add to the appeal of the books. This set will help readers understand what bullying is and why it is so hurtful, and offer them workable solutions to cope with it. These titles are helpful for individual use, but they are also suitable for classrooms, making them strong choices for primary-grade libraries.
