    The Respect Program by Amanda Cook sounds amazing! Bullying is just so hard for everyone involved – the child, the parents, the school and yes even the bully. Not sure if you have heard of story Dandelion, written by Galvin Scott Davis? The key message is that “Bullying is for people with no imagination”. Beautifully written and illustrated it tells the story of Benjamin Brewster. It is worth checking out (in my humble opinion). From what I understand the story will be released on iPad in August 2012.
