Stand Down Bullies stories start when Ezekiel is sent home early from book club for aggressive behavior that stems from unresolved emotional issues. Blake unintentionally does some sibling-bullying against his little sister during summer break; Sarah ends up in the principal's office after being peer-pressured into bullying other children on the playground. Inspired by her mother, Sarah uses kindness to stop bullying. Each story features healthy interactions with parents as a resource for talking about bullies.

This book features a range of children, and diversity is shown in positive ways with characters that span various cultures, ethnicities, family situations, physical challenges and more. Readers of all backgrounds will see themselves in these pages while learning to value the diversity within their own community and being exposed to differences from around the world.

The very-real emotions behind bullying behavior are highlighted, and the family discussions in the text remind young readers how character traits are built over time and with help, too.
