"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.

This Free Spirit child behavior classic presents charming illustrations along with the encouraging message. Psychologist Martine Agassi helps young children understand that violence is never okay, that they can manage their anger and other strong feelings, and that they're capable of positive, loving actions. Especially 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, Hands Are Not for Hitting also includes a special section for adults, with ideas for things to talk about and activities to do together. Recommended for anyone in a caring relationship with a young child; perfect for childcare, preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary school classrooms.
