Zach finds the courage to be an upstander when he uses his stand-up-to-bullying STAR.

When Zach sees his friend Sonya being bullied at school, he doesn’t know what to do or how to be an upstander. The kids who are being mean are popular—it’s scary to think about getting involved. After talking with his brother and remembering what his teacher taught the class about bullying prevention, Zach creates a tool for being an upstander called the stand-up-to-bullying STAR:

  • Speak up by talking to the people being bullied
  • Take off by helping them leave the area
  • Ask questions about how they are feeling and actively listen to the answers
  • Report what happened to an adult as soon as you can

The next day when Zach stands up for Sonya, he realizes it feels great to be an upstander. A short note is included to help teachers, parents, counselors, and other adults reinforce the book’s messages and help kids learn how to be an upstander.
