Reviews - What do customers think about Hands Are Not for Hitting (Ages 4-7) (Best Behavior Series)?
Wonderful tool! Dec 9, 2008
I bought this for my 2 year old. She isn't a big talker yet, so her frustration comes out with her hands. She loves the book, especially the page with lots of hands on it. She always waves "Hi" at the other hands. She is still hitting, I think she is still a bit young to get the concept, but we are working on it! I totally recommend this book!
Hitting Hands Oct 6, 2008
I purchased this book for my 22 month old who has learned that hitting is an "effective" way to get his big brother's attention. My son is fascinated with this book and obviously gets the message. We have a few other books from this series and love them.
nice book and good tips at back Sep 21, 2008
we like another book in this series, Germs Are Not For Sharing (no, i'm not a germ-phobe, my 2yo just liked the illustrations), and this one is great, too. I like the tips at the back for cooling off when angry. The trick of asking, "what are hands for? how about waving?" has worked every time (so far) that i've used it. keeps my 2yo from hitting her 8mo sister!
Good repetition Jun 13, 2008
Repetition is a good tool for teaching kids to remember important lessons. This book does a good job of repeating that hands are not for hitting, and also suggests what hands ARE good for (holding hands to cross the street, etc.). My 4 year old loves this series of books and we refer to the text often in conversation with her to remind her of the important lessons.
Thank you! May 18, 2008
We have to read it frequently but it helps my toddler to address her feelings and her frustrations without hitting.
