In many countries, people are fighting for their freedom and for peace. In honour of them, we have compiled this list to help teachers, librarians, and parents help kids understand the importance of peace—close to home and farther afield—and that they can help to make the world more peaceful.
Books to help kids of all ages deal with the all-too-persistent problem of bullying. The list starts with non-fiction, moves to elementary, and then hits the YA scene. Many are award-winners or otherwise critically acclaimed. See the blog post on which the list is based at: http://49thshelf.com/Blog/2012/11/13/Bullies-Beware-Kids-and-YA-Books-for-Bullying-Awareness-Week
