Nick Katsoris, author of “Loukoumi And The Schoolyard Bully,” talks about his book and school program that is targeted toward stopping bullying in schools.

Below is the book’s description from its website.

“In Loukoumi And The Schoolyard Bully, Loukoumi is about to have a baby brother. When her friends discuss what to name him, schoolyard bully, Igor the alligator,  ridicules Loukoumi’s name, which Loukoumi explains means “sweet” in Greek  and is a type of jelly candy with powdered sugar on top. During the course of the day, through several common interactions, Igor realizes that he and Loukoumi are more alike than he thought. In the end, he learns that bullying is not cool, and although Loukoumi’s name is different, everyone is really all the same.”
