No Kidding About Bullying Nominated for Major Award

Okay, please indulge me while I brag just a little because I'm too excited to keep this too myself: my publisher just informed me that No Kidding About Bullying has been nominated for the Association of Educational Publishers' Distinguished Achievement Award!

This is such a wonderful honor, and so I'm happy just to have my book nominated. (If I sound like I'm at the Oscars, remember, you're indulging me here.) Anyway, the winner will not be announced till June. I can't believe I'll have to wait nine months to find out, but I've given birth to two kids, and they took nine months to get here, so I guess I can wait nine months for this too.

By the way, if you're using No Kidding About Bullying, please let me know how it's going. How are your kids responding to the sessions? Is there a particular part of your day where you fit the sessions in -- morning meeting, health, social studies? Do you have a favorite session? I'd love to hear from you and your kids.

By the way, New Jersey (my state) just came up with the most amazing anti-bullying legislation. See my article in the Examiner for details.  Yay, New Jersey!! We really do lots of things right!
