Hands Are Not for Hitting / Las manos no son para pegar Board Book

Best Behavior® Series


It’s never too soon for children to learn that violence is never okay, hands can do many good things, and everyone is capable of positive, loving actions. Hands are for helping, learning, playing, and much more. This bright, inviting, durable board book features simple words and full-color illustrations that teach these important concepts in ways even very young children can understand.

Our English-Spanish bilingual books for children include all of the children’s text along with a section for parents, teachers, and caregivers in both languages.

Recommended for anyone in a caring relationship with a young child; perfect for childcare and preschool.
