Bully 101is an irreverent look at a familiar and ongoing issue. It explores both the temptations of bullying and the remarkable possibility of kindness. It is an excellent conversation starter for both parents and teachers, and for anyone who hopes for peace. The illustrations are funky. The text rhymes and twists. Geared toward readers from primary to grade seven, Bully 101identifies ways in which bullying occurs (cyber, playground, bus), the feelings that result (for both bully and victim) and the simple notion that anyone can choose kindness instead. The book does not answer all the questions surrounding bullying, nor does it preach. Rather, it aims to begin conversations on why we bully or watch it happen, and presents the idea that we can all choose not to participate in bullying.

Provides an interesting approach to the topic of bullying for it presents it as a class on how to be one. If you pay attention though, you see how many negative adjectives are used throughout. To further emphasize how wrong it is, the author then does a 180 by introducing a Kindness class. In the bully portion, slightly mean sentences are used as a border to show how much bullying is more about words, and their mental/emotional impact, rather than about physical abuse.
