Many children have dealt with bullies, and it can be a difficult topic for adults to handle. After all, the majority of us were not taught to stand up for ourselves. Christina Furnival has written a great book to address that topic in The Not-So-Friendly Friend. The main character feels very badly when her friend acts more like a bully than a friend. The book walks her through some very simple ways to stand up and hold boundaries in situations where the friend is bullying her. This would be a great book to help young children going through a similar situation or in a classroom setting. It isn’t a book you would pick up to just read a story.
