  2. Please enter me. I’d love my children’s class to have this or to read at home. I believe bullying is getting to be worse and some kids can’t handle it. Too many bullied kids commit suicide or do school shootings now days. I’d like my kids to not become statistics!!!

  3. Bullying has become a serious problem at my children’s school. Even though we live in a very small, rural town, the issue is very, very large. My son has been a repeat victim of bullying. In spite of having an alleged anti-bullying program, bullying continues to run rampant. I think if students were exposed to books such as these, instead of just having weekly meetings with their teachers, the effects of any anti-bullying program would be far more positive. I would love to have some books to read with my young son. michelle_willms(at)yahoo(dot)com.

  5. I think that public attention, books, movies and television programs and cartoons addressing the bullying problem has been beneficial to all and hopefully it opens the eyes to bulliers before they injure someone. I believe that this book The Adventures Of The Bumbles: The New Kid In School and it will be interesting to find out how Nick is kept safe from the bully Billy with Nick being the new kid in school
