I stumbled across this book while on vacation and couldn't leave the store without it. I wasn't sure if I could get it in Canada. (Of course, now I know it can be ordered without enormous shipping costs). With the "Imagine a school without bullying" initiatives going on in Ontario, this is one of my favourite finds about bullying. "One" incorporates many topics in a simple, creative, and appealing story. Kathryn Otoshi has found a very imaginative way to teach (not preach) about kindness and getting along with others and to spur conversations about bullying -not just what it is, but also what to do about it. Colours, numbers, and size are woven into the story in a very natural way. As a Kindergarten teacher, I can't wait to incorporate this story into my program and to share it with other teachers at my school! "One" is a valuable story for children and adults alike. Enjoy!
