Employing mini-dramas, cartoon animation, and "on-the-street" interviews with real children, this lively video introduces viewers to the concepts of tolerance, diversity and getting along with others. Viewers learn the importance of treating others with respect; making friends with kids from different cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds; and speaking out if they observe someone else being teased or bullied. Viewers hear true stories from real kids who relate how their personal differences - their physical abilities, weight, or skin color - provoked bullying. Young viewers will be encouraged and uplifted as they hear how these kids empowered themselves against bullies. After viewing the video, activities from the Teacher's Resource book encourage continued dialogue on tolerance and diversity.
Includes resource guide.
"The film features a multiethnic cast, well-done vignettes, and places to pause for classroom discussion. This would be an appropriate adjunct to classroom discussions, and would fit nicely into programs to eliminate bullying and harassment." - School Library Journal
