Anti-Bullying Book – BOR Award Winner

Jan 6, 2014 by

Bully Cover-1Author, MaryAnn Milton Butterfield, has been selected to receive the Bill of Responsibilities Award for her recently published book, You Are Too a Bully!

Ms. Butterfield handles the very important subject of bullying in a creative, insightful, and entertaining manner. In addition to the compelling story, the book includes an Anti-Bullying Code of Conduct and a list of questions to help children and parents identify what is – and what is not – bullying.  Whether you’re interested in this subject as a child, a parent, a teacher or school administrator, this book provides valuable tools that can be used immediately to bring bullying out in the open where it can be stopped.

“An Anti-Bullying Program must engage the students and parents, in addition to teachers and administrators,” Ms. Butterfield points out. “Five-year-olds are expected to begin learning immediately in kindergarten, and today’s time constraints limit the emphasis teachers can put on much needed social skills. Without these basic tools, many children do not know how to deal with normal childhood aggression and may respond inappropriately, or they may become victims of bullying.”

In addition to her book, Ms. Butterfield provides FREE pdf downloadable material at www.butterfieldstories.com for schools and organizations to create their own Anti-Bullying Program.

Born and raised in Greenfield, Massachusetts, Ms. Butterfield currently resides with her husband in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where she penned, You Are Too a Bully!

Just-Love-Him-front-coverWilliam is a good little boy but, like most little ones, he often does things that frustrate his parents. Sometimes his parents do things that frustrate William too. Written in rhyme with beautiful illustrations, Just Love Him, I Guess demonstrates that when parents overcome frustration with unconditional love, kids follow their example.

This book communicates, in a loving and entertaining way, the importance of unconditional love. The book’s design and illustrations are first rate. The one thing that shines through every page is how much love the author has for her son. But then, just look at the cover: How could you not love the little guy?
