From Random House:
From November 17th – 21st it is Anti-Bullying Week in the UK and Penguin Random House has partnered with the Anti-Bullying Alliance to launch a nationwide anti-bullying campaign inspired by the internationally bestselling novel Wonder by R J Palacio.

We launched our Choose Kind campaign earlier this year and so far have had over 700 schools in the UK sign up to take part. We are encouraging teachers and pupils to read Wonder, promote kindness in their schools and show us how they did this during Anti-Bullying Week this November. The Anti-Bullying Alliance found that nearly a quarter of 5-18 year olds have been bullied at school and 45% of parents state that they are concerned about their child being bullied.
This isn’t just a campaign for schools, through Wonder we’d like to inspire all people to be a little bit kinder to each other.
