"Every day after that, Danny does something to frighten Craig....Craig is smaller and far too scared to tell even his parents, let alone his teachers. He is miserable. And every day, Danny tries harder to make it worse."

On the internet, on playgrounds, and in schools across the country, thousands of elementary and middle school kids are picked on, teased, and harassed by bullies. It's something that can jeopardize a child's development — unless they have the tools to help stop bullying in its tracks.

In Jay McGraw's Life Strategies for Dealing with Bullies, McGraw helps kids identify potentially harmful situations and deal with bullies through tips, techniques, and examples that apply to real-life situations. Jay doesn't just speak about the bullies — he also speaks to the bullies themselves to help them change their ways.

Jay takes a no-nonsense approach to bullying and the ways readers can handle it. This timely and much-needed book will be the tool kids across the country can use to stop being victims — and take back the power in their lives.

This book was a requirement for my online communications class and it helped give insight into bullying within children and how to overcome it with the help of adults. It was definitely a very helpful book and I learned a few things outside of what was required for class as well.

Self-Help BookMcGraw, J. (2008). Life strategies for dealing with bullies. New York: Aladdin.Life Strategies for Dealing with Bullies begins with an extensive explanation about the different types of bullying, the types of bullies, and the damages caused by bullying. Each chapter ends with a summary and journal exercises. The relevant cartoon-style illustrations support the information throughout the book. Even though the book claims to be aimed at the age group of 9-13, it actually seems that it would be more accepted by younger readers. The style of writing often seems as though the author is lecturing the reader, as opposed to encouraging or being supportive. McGraw often uses all capital letters or repeats a sentence for emphasis as though the reader did not get it the first time. The life strategies, as promised by the title, don¿t actually come until after the first hundred pages. Frequently throughout the first hundred pages, McGraw also states that he will get to the strategies ¿later.¿ I am not sure how many young readers would be willing to wait for the strategies. Grades 4-6.

The name of it is 'Rise of ISIS: A Threat we can't Ignore.' Don't quite remember the author, but it's not too hard to find.

Description of Territory: <br> A grassy clearing in the middle of the forest. Brambles and thorns surround most of the camp, ideal for defending against attacking Clans and predators. Forming a sort of 'U' shape, the dens go around with the High-Log directly ahead of the entrance. Next to the High-Log is the leader's den on the right side, elder's den on the left, and so on, with the apprentices' den closest to the entrance. Off to the side is the Medicine Cat den, a small burrow in the ground with plenty of paces to store herbs, seeds, and other things. Outside of camp, there is the forest, Sunningrocks, river, meadow, Abandoned Twolegplace, Thunderpath, and the Twolegplace. With plenty of good places to hunt and perfect weather, this is the perfect spot for a Clan. <p> Map: <br> Res two: Main Camp. <br> Res Three: Leader's Den. (If you're locked out or need to talk to either myself (Wolfpelt) or Silverstar (when she gets back), post there.) <br> Res Four: Elder's Den. (If your elder is tired or something, post where you are in the main camp and post in the den as well.) <br> Res Five: Nursery. (Kits and queens post there.) <br> Res Six: Warrior's Den. (Make a nest there. If your cat is tired, post something in the main camp like "Feathertail is in the Warrior's Den," and then post there.) <br> Res Seven: Apprentices' Den. (You know the drill.) <br> Res Eight: Patrol Organization. <br> Res Nine: Forest, good prey. <br> Res Ten: The Sunningrocks, good prey. <br> Res Eleven: The river. Apprentices not allowed there without a Warrior. <br> Res Twelve: Meadow, good prey. <br> Res Thirteen: Abandoned Twolegplace, beginning of border. Apprentices not allowed there without a Warrior. <br> Res Fourteen: Thunderpath, border. Apprentices not allowed there without a Warrior. <br> Res Fifteen: Edge of forest, beginning of Twolegplace, border. Apprentices not allowed there without a Warrior. <br> Res Sixteen: Twolegplace. No cat is allowed there under ANY circumstances. <p> Border Patrols go to places with "Border" in them, Hunting Patrols go to paces with "Good Prey" on them. <br> May JayClan succeed! <br> ~Wolfpelt
