Anti-bullying Week happens in schools across England each November. This year’s Anti-Bullying Week has the theme Change Starts With Us and is happening from Monday 11th November – Friday 15th November 2019.
At The Linking Network we love this book, How to be a Lion, and think it fits in really well with the theme of Change Starts With Us.
‘I wrote How to be a Lion because I wanted to say to children, there are many ways that you can be you. Don’t be afraid to show it. If you’re quiet, gentle, or a dreamer – they’re all valid. I wanted to show how you might resist the pressure to conform – to stand up for who it is you want to be. To think for yourself – not to accept someone else’s point of view just because that makes it easier to fit in.’ Ed Vere.
