Berwyn author addresses bullying issues in children's picture book
By Suburban Life Media
Author Judy Cirton of Berwyn addresses different aspects of bullying that children often face in schools in her new book, “Candice H. and the Bully.”
As a child, Cirton was bullied and was scared to tattle. She says it's the spirit of her late daughter, Candice H., that prompted her to educate children around the world that bullying is wrong and dangerous. The frightened secrecy they hold within to accept the cruel punishment and die silently inside themselves must not happen.
Through the illustrated book for children, Cirton encourages everyone to work together as a team to put an end to the sufferings of victims of bullying.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Cirton was inspired to write the Candice H. series in remembrance of her late daughter. As a former educator, she is well aware that bullying is commonplace in schools, and has become an advocate against it. She says she is blessed that her two adult children did not experience bullying in schools.
