Author Miriam RS Daniels’ ‘Bully-Free School’ is a simple yet effective tool for encouraging children to stand up to bullies

Xlibris, the self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Bully-Free School: If you really need to bully someone, see Ms. Smith. In this book, author Miriam RS Daniels writes a story about a boy who takes away his bully’s power.

Harold, the protagonist, is a young boy who loves going to school. He couldn’t even wait for the weekends to be over—until he meets Walter Lee, the bully. Since then, Harold is always afraid, like many other kids who are bullied. One day, Ms. Smith, the principal, introduces the Bully-Free School sign—making sure all students are aware that bullying or name-calling will not be tolerated in their school. “Bullies are only powerful if you don’t tell anyone. Tell someone,” urged Ms. Smith.

Harold decides that this is his chance to stop Walter Lee’s obnoxious ways. He talks to Ms. Smith and shares what the bully has been doing to him and other students. Will the big bully finally stop?

In this brief yet insightful picture book, Daniels assists students in overcoming the power of the bully. For more information on Bully-Free School, interested parties may log on to
