Best Behaviour Series - Words Are Not for Hurting (Soft cover)
Elizabeth Verdick and Illustrated by Marieka Heinlen. Selected as a "Teaching Tool" in Teaching Tolerance magazine. The older children get, the more words they know and can use_including hurtful words. While our Words Are Not for Hurting Board Book is written for children ages 0-3, this expanded soft cover version is for ages 4-7, a time of growing vocabularies and increasing awareness of how much words matter. Children learn that their words belong to them: They can think before they speak, then choose what to say and how to say it. The book makes the connection between hurtful words and feelings of anger, sadness, and regret. It introduces positive ways for children to respond when others say mean or unkind words to them. And it reinforces the importance of saying _I_m sorry,_ two little words that can be a big help. Includes activities and discussion starters that parents, caregivers, and educators can use when working with children. 40 pages, illustrated, soft cover, full-colour, 9 x 9, ISBN 1-57542-156-9, ISBN 13 978-1-57542-156-8
