Perhaps the most important skill one should acquire to be ready for any college or any career, to be a productive part of any community, is kindness. Lester and Reba remind us of the critical importance of teaching kindness in Bullying Hurts and then they do better than that: they take us into classrooms and show us, step-by-step and book-by-book, how we can use literature to help students become the empathetic, caring, kind people this world desperately needs. You won t just read this book, you ll use it.
