Words Are Not for Hurting / Las palabras no son para lastimar Board Book

Best Behavior® Series

$7.95

Children are known for speaking their minds. We can’t expect them to watch every word, but we can help them 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.

In both English and Spanish, this book helps little ones learn big ideas: they are responsible for what they do and say, their actions and words affect others, and 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 in both languages.

Praise for the series
“It’s not always an easy feat to teach little ones about morals and the difference between right and wrong. But great news for you, author Elizabeth Verdick is here to help you.”—Baby Let’s Shop blog

“Not only fun for you and your little ones to cuddle up with at bedtime (or any other time for that matter), but [these titles] also teach the importance of using words in respectful and loving ways, and in ways that resolve conflict instead of escalating it. Heinlen’s illustrations will capture a child’s imagination as she gazes at an assorted mixture of children from many races.”—noirbaby.com

“A useful tool for the classroom.”—Children’s Literature
