The Cool Kind Kid Handbook is Bullying Prevention - Social Skills Activities for Children Ages 4-9. It was developed from the content in the comprehensive Cool Kind Kid Social Skills, Character Values, and Anti-bullying Curriculum, Elementary School Edition. This handbook was requested by parents and teachers through focus groups who were looking for short, fun, engaging activities to help teach their kids how to build healthy relationships, and equip them with tools for rejecting bullying. Cool Kind Kid supports the current research advocating for social skills, or social competence training, at young ages, as the missing link in bullying prevention. Kids are tired of the bullying. They want to see it stop, but don't know how. Pilot studies and teacher/parent feedback have shown positive improvements in behavior with Cool Kind Kid materials. As we redefine cool for kids, and they learn that cool means kind, caring, and respectful behavior, the motivation for bullying is considerably weakened. With award-winning music, fun characters and activities, kids are engaged as they learn they can be both kind and cool. They have fun while learning that, "The KIND kid is the COOL kid, not the bully." Winner of Creative Child Magazine Book of the Year Award and Academics' Choice Smart Book Award Winner.
