The Bully Barn: A Lesson For Bullies, Bystanders and Victims by Robert Gioia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Bully Barn adds a new dimension to educating children about bullies. Using farm animals as a tool, the author plots out different scenes which enables the child to identify the bully and the bystander. Bully behaviour and appropriate interventions by an adult or role model are key lessons in a child's life especially if they are of school going age.
One of the main lessons, I would like for anyone to take away from this book is the lesson of being treated fairly and that everyone deserves a chance at correcting their mistakes.
In the long run, this is able to curb mob mentality which we are so prone to on social media these days. The author uses simple illustrations to stress his key points. These illustrations also make it easier for children to read the book by themselves.
