Selected as a "Teaching Tool" in Teaching Tolerance magazine
Hands are for helping, playing, working, learning, taking care of oneself, saying hello, and many more good things, but hands are not for hitting! This new book contains charming, full color illustrations along with the familiar encouraging words of the original. Psychologist Martine Agassi helps young children understand that violence is never okay. It shows that they can manage their anger and other strong feelings, and that they're capable of positive, caring actions. At an age when children are interacting more with others and starting school, they need to know that hitting is unacceptable. Made to be read aloud, this book also includes a special section for adults. Recommended for anyone in a caring relationship with a young child; perfect for childcare, preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school classrooms.
