Books About Bullies and Bullying

Unfortunately, bullying is a very real and scary experience in schools, workplaces, and in other daily situations. The following is a selection of juvenile fiction books (grades 3-7) you can find at the library that explore the world of bullies and the bullied. Check back for another list of young adult fiction books (grades 7-12), as well as nonfiction selections that might help you or someone you know deal with a bullying problem.

*Most importantly, please remember that if someone is bullying you, or you have seen it happen to someone else, notify an authority figure like a teacher, principal, librarian, or other adult immediately. There is no excuse for bullying, and the problem should be addressed as quickly as possible.*
