"One" by Kathryn Otoshi

I have loved visiting classrooms and reading the story One to our students!! It has opened up discussions about how to treat people with kindness, how to stand up for yourself, and how to stand up to help others when needed.


ABOUT THIS BOOK: Blue is a quiet, calm color who gets picked on by hot headed Red. The other colors are bystanders who do not agree with Red's behavior, but don't dare say anything to stop him. Every time Red says something mean and no one speaks up, he gets bigger and more intimidating. Luckily, the number One shows the other colors how to stand up to Red. All of the colors, including Red, learn that EVERYONE COUNTS!!

What is Bullying?

As we roll into National Bullying Prevention Month in October, we want students to understand what bullying is, how to help prevent bullying, and how to speak up and seek help if needed. There are three specific characteristics that identify bullying:

  • The behavior must be repeated. Bullying doesn't just happen once or twice – it is ongoing
  • The bullying is intentional
  • The bullying is directed to someone with less power
