Las palabras no son para lastimar/Words Are Not for Hurting
(Words Are Not for Hurting)
by Elizabeth Verdick; illustrated by Marieka Heinlen
Children learn that their words belong to them: They can think before they speak, then choose what to say and how to say it. The book makes the connection between hurtful words and feelings of anger, sadness, and regret. It introduces positive ways for children to respond when others say mean or unkind words to them. And the book reinforces the importance of saying "I'm sorry," two little words that can be a big help.
Simple words complement warm, inviting, full-color illustrations that show real-life situations kids can relate to. A special section at the end includes additional discussion ideas, tips, and info adults and kids can read together. This bilingual edition includes all of the children's text along with a section for parents, teachers, and caregivers in both languages. Click
