Favorite Book

What is your favorite book (fiction or non-fiction)? What makes it so important to you?

My favorite book is "Please Stop Laughing At Me". This book is the life story of Jodee Blanco who was bullied from 5th grade through high school, and what she ended up doing with her life to overcome it. This story had me in tears because of the awful things that her peers could say and do to her. Bullying is such a big problem in schools now, and I don't think as parents/teachers/students realize the damage we are doing to those we are with everyday. I wouldn't say I was bullied in school, but I was picked on for my weight and odd family life. Kids only do what they learn from home, so be loving and respectful to your children and then in turn will show to the world what you have taught them.
