It’s the first day of a new school year, and Tommy’s little brother Matthew is just starting kindergarten. Tommy can’t wait to show him the ropes. But when some older kids start picking on Matthew, Tommy knows Matthew needs more than a big brother: he needs a defender. Somebody has to stand up to the school bullies once and for all.
The Defenders: Bully Patrol is the first installment in The Defenders book series. It models a peaceful approach to bully intervention and looking out for others that children, caregivers, and teachers can employ in daily life.
