Synopsis

Stop Picking On Me looks at the causes and the effects of both physical and verbal bullying and encourages communication of fears and worries to those that can help.

The superb A First Look At series consists of a number of reassuring picturebooks that give advice and promote interaction between children, parents, and teachers on a wide variety of personal, social and emotional issues.

Notes for parents and teachers at the back of the book provide valuable advice for how to share this book with your child or class.

Suitable for Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7), occasional prompts throughout the text give a chance to discuss the issue being raised.

Written by trained psychotherapist, journalist and parent, and illustrated by an experienced children's book artist, this is a part of an acclaimed and successful, long-running series of picture-book non-fiction books for Early Years. Books in the series give advice and promote interaction between children, parents and teachers on a wide variety of personal, social and emotional issues. They are excellent tools for teachers to use during classroom discussions.

I've not come across a series of book aimed at both children and adults in this way and think it's a good idea.

A good introduction to the topic, from which you can start and build on your dialogue with your daughter.
