ZACH STANDS UP
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
By William Mulcahy. Illustrated by Darren McKee. Help children stand up to bullying behavior with the easy-to-remember strategy in this picture book. When Zach’s best friend, Sonya, starts being bullied by the popular kids, Zach doesn’t know what to do. With help from his teacher and his little brother, Zach creates the "stand-up-to-bullying STAR": Speak up, Take off, Actively listen, and Report. The next time Zach sees Sonya being bullied, he defends her, gets her away from the situation, listens to her, and reports the bullies to his teacher. Teaching tips for adults conclude the story.
