Hands are not for hitting. Hands are for saying hello. . . . And for playing, creating, helping, working, learning, encouraging, taking care of oneself, and so many more good things.
In this gentle, encouraging book, psychologist Martine Agassi helps young children understand that they are capable of positive, loving actions. Simple words and warm, inviting full-color illustrations reinforce the underlying concepts: that violence is never okay, and kids can learn to manage their anger. Words tell—and pictures show—the many wonderful things kids can do with their hands instead of hitting.
This fun-to-read board book helps little ones learn big ideas: that they are responsible for what they do and say; that their actions and words affect others; and that they can make positive choices. For ages baby-preschool. Hardcover (board book). (24 pp.)
