This week (17th - 21st November) is National Anti Bullying Week. We're proud to support "Choose Kind"

R.J. Palacio's utterly fabulous "Wonder" - A fantastic standard bearer for National Anti Bullying Week and "Choose Kind"
Penguin / Random House are proud to support National Anti-Bullying Week (17th-21st November) with a fantastic campaign inspired by R.J Palacio's international best seller "Wonder"

"We launched our 'Choose Kind' campaign earlier this year and so far have had over 700 schools in the UK sign up to take part. We are encouraging teachers and pupils to read Wonder, promote kindness in their schools and show us how they did this during Anti-Bullying Week this November. The Anti-Bullying Alliance found that nearly a quarter of 5-18 year olds have been bullied at school and 45% of parents state that they are concerned about their child being bullied."

The campaign isn't purely limited to schools, and aims to inspire people to be kinder, more thoughtful, more aware of others.

We're proud to spread the word about the campaign and these fantastic resource packs. Do also take a moment or two to read our review of the awe-inspiring "Wonder" too!
