IN OUR COVER STORY THIS MONTH, WE INTRODUCED OUR READERS TO THE BOOK “DAISY CHAIN,” WHICH SYMBOLICALLY TALKS ABOUT A VERY SPECIFIC TYPE OF BULLYING—CYBER BULLYING.  THROUGHOUT HISTORY, HOWEVER, BULLIES AND BULLYING TACTICS HAVE TAKEN ON MANY FORMS AND AFFECTED PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE.  SO WE ARE DEDICATING OUR LATEST SCHOOL LIBRARY TO ANTI-BULLYING TITLES FROM THE PUBLISHER LEE & LOW BOOKS.  IN ADDITION, WE ARE ALSO INCLUDING LINKS TO SPECIAL TEACHER GUIDES FOR THESE BOOKS TO HELP OPEN UP ANTI-BULLYING DISCUSSIONS AND HOPEFULLY OFFER SOME NEW IDEAS AND APPROACHES FOR HANDLING THIS SENSITIVE SUBJECT.

Basant is here with feasts and parties to celebrate the arrival of spring. But what Malik is looking forward to most is doing battle from his rooftop with Falcon, the special kite he has built for speed. Today is Malik’s chance to be the best kite fighter and become the king of Basant. In two fierce battles, Malik takes down the kites flown by the bully next door. Then Malik moves on, guiding Falcon and plucking kites from the sky. Soon, Malik has a big pile of captured kites. But then the bully reappears, trying to take a kite from a girl in the alley below. With a sudden act of generosity, Malik finds the perfect way to help the girl.
