Nonprofit to Give Away Anti-Bullying Books

To combat the growing problem of bullying, local nonprofit organization Do The Write Thing of DC has published a series of anti-bullying books.

E-versions of the four books will be available for free download at Amazon.com during October, recognized as National Bullying Prevention Month.

One e-book will be available for free download on Oct. 3, 10 and 24.

The first book in the series, “Be A Superhero by Saying No to Bullying,” written by Gerald Nord√© Jr., DTWT founder and executive director, focuses on the many reasons youth are bullied, including behavioral health problems.

The book is geared towards 3rd- to 5th-graders.

Another book, “My American Doll and Me: Superheroes Fighting Bullying with Kindness” by Carla Andrea and LoLo Smith, features girls and American Girl dolls in matching superhero costumes.

This book is being produced in conjunction with an after-school program at Malcolm X Opportunity Center in Ward 8.

DTWT, which has exclusively served children from the poorest areas of the city, has produced books with children living in public housing developments in the Lincoln Heights, Kenilworth Courts and Woodland Terrace communities.
