Publishers Description Some of your words are kind. But some of them are not. Words are not for hurting. What do hurtful words do?" Children are known for speaking their minds. We can't expect them to watch every word, but we can help them to understand that their words affect other people. We can gently guide them to choose words that are helpful instead of hurtful, and to say two very important words--"I'm sorry"--when hurtful words come out before they can stop them. Like Free Spirit's earlier board books "Hands Are Not for Hitting "and "Teeth Are Not for Biting," "Words Are Not for Hurting" 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. Simple words and delightful full-color illustrations make it perfect for reading aloud one-on-one or in small groups. The book also includes helpful tips for parents and caregivers.

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.
