We’ve teamed up with the Anti-Bullying Alliance for #AntiBullyingWeek 2017 to share some of the many positive anti-bullying messages in JoJo Siwa’s JoJo’s Guide to the Sweet Life.
There’s even a free downloadable JoJo’s Guide poster available on their website, which you can display in your classroom, library or at home!
About the book:
You might recognise firecracker JoJo Siwa from Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition, or maybe you fell in love with her on Dance Moms. JoJo’s nonfiction literary debut is the next generation’s version of a real life Cinderella story: Nebraska girl becomes Hollywood’s bell of the ball thanks to her spunky attitude and creative drive. Through the lens of JoJo’s personal experience and playful voice, she digs into themes such as finding your passion, keeping strong in the face of adversity, appreciating your individualism, the importance of being loyal, and never giving up. Most of all, JoJo’s story is meant to inspire young girls to find the courage and confidence to go after their dreams. Go Siwanatorz!
The book is available in shops now and more information can be found here.
This year’s Anti-Bullying Week theme is #AllDifferentAllEqual. This year’s theme is all the more important after a new poll found that 40% of children polled said they would hide aspects of themselves for fear of being bullied and that 41% of children would keep quiet to avoid being bullied themselves. More about these findings and the aims of this year’s campaign can be found here.
