great book Dec 14, 2008
My daughter is 3 1/2 and this was a great book for her. Not too detailed but enough so. She seems to get the concept and it has helped her communicate with her friends in a constructive way.
Great Stocking Stuffer! Dec 13, 2008
I bought this book for my granddaughter who is 6 and is having problems in school. Name calling and not getting along with other children is at the head of the problem list needing to be addressed. Not wanting to create self image problems, this book seems to be the better way to deal with the issue without hurt. I hope it works.
Excellent book Nov 25, 2008
This book really helped me teach my kids how words can affect others. They are 6 years old and they gained a good understanding about how their words not only can hurt each other but also their friends. They were also able to tell me how when I get angry I make them feel. I would recommend this book.
Another Great Book In This Series Nov 22, 2008
Very simple, cute book that gets the message across quite well. Straight and to the point, as the other books in this series are.
Great book Nov 16, 2008
My five year old loved the pictures in this book. The illustrations are great and it is easy for a toddler to follow and understand.
