Empowering Books

At the beginning of the school year I had requested several books from our school librarian to purchase for our school.  I am big on Bucket Fillers and wanted more books along this same topic.  If you don't know about Bucket Fillers, you can read more about it in my previous post {HERE}. 

As we approach the end of the year, I know we all find that no matter how much we have instilled good habits into our kids many just forget around spring break.   So I was really excited on Monday when our librarian brought all of these books to me.  We have been reading one each day this week and really focusing on filling a bucket for classmates.  If you are in need of books about tattling or bullying I recommend adding these to your list. 


These books couldn't have come at a better time!  They were perfect for reinforcing bullying and tattling.  Some other books that I already have and like to use on this topic are:

Let me know if you have a must read book that's good about reinforcing these issues.


  1. Love your bucket filler idea. Check out my new 2nd grade blog if you get a chance!

  2. I'm glad that "spring break fever" hits other classrooms too! Thanks for the book suggestions. I have a few but am definitely going to check out the others.

  4. Great website. Thank you for all the work you are doing to raise awareness. I have published three books on bullying (Weird! Dare! Tough! Free Spirit Publishing) that reinforce these issues as well. Fee free to check out our website: and let me know if I can be of help.
    Best Wishes,
