Bullying continues to be an ongoing problem for children everywhere. Children from every race, culture, and socioeconomic group are susceptible to bullies.

Bully B.E.A.N.S helps children identify bullying, and offers clear and impactful action strategies for both targets and bystanders.
Maxine liked to pick on kids... especially Winston. Winston is the smartest kid in our whole school. Maxine made him do all of her homework and give her all of his lunch money. Maxine liked to make Winston cry... then she'd call him a crybaby.
"If you don't do exactly what I tell you to, I'll knock you into next week "
Nobody liked the way Maxine treated Winston, but we were too afraid to do anything about it.
Written by bestselling author Julia Cook, Bully B.E.A.N.S. reminds children of the power of their voice and how to use it effectively when standing up against bullying.
Bullies Everywhere Are Now Stopped
