Cara the Wonder Dog by ICPPD student Stephanie Ruschin-Burke

Join Carl, Cara and their friends as they tackle bullying!

Bullying is deeply troubling for everyone involved – parents, teachers, bystanders and of course the bullied child. Carl clearly says, “No, stop. I don’t like that.” That’s good – but unfortunately often it’s not enough. What can really stop bullying?

This book is offering coping strategies on how to deal with bullying for each of these groups. Most importantly, it reflects children’s thoughts and fears around bullying, whether they are experiencing or witnessing it.

It gives specific examples of proactive engagement and highlights the different emotional facets. It playfully introduces the idea of how people project parts of themselves on to others, which raises mindfulness and consciousness in children.
