I'd love some recommendations on books about bullying. (fiction and non fiction)
I've seen a couple of lists online but I didn't like them.

My son needs to learn how to stand up for himself and he also needs to learn how to recognize when he's being bullied. (he's on the autism spectrum so sometimes it's not clear to him yet other times are blown out of proportion.)

Thanks!

Yet, he's still teased.

When I was teased as a kid, I ignored them and went on my merry way. Did it stop the teasing? Nope.


I may end up talking to the school psychologist and behaviorist to see if they can come up with a social story about bullying.

Not all kids are that way!

I know more than one kid helped by this site and attitude --- Don't feed the trolls attitude. And knowing what behaviors feeds them.

Have you posted at wrongplanted.net? There boards might be more helpful.

You might want to check out some of Trudy Ludwig's books.

Although this one isn't for children, it sure helped me to help my son and my students:
