Words are Not for Hurting by Elizabeth VerdickThese titles are also ideal for playschool groups and reception classes. Developing good relationships with others is a key part of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework for all children Birth to 5 in registered Early Years settings (which became statutory in September 2008). The roll out of the SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) Curriculum to all Primary Schools puts an additional emphasis on teaching good behaviour and ways to deal with emotions throughout primary education. Features include rhythmic, repetitive text, friendly & ethnically diverse illustrations and humorous touches, plus a page of concise advice for parents/carers. Rhythmic, repetitive text makes these books fun to share or read aloud.
|ndustry (September 2009) 'Right and wrong feature heavily. Brilliant starting points for helping to show young children how to develop good relationships by exploring and managing feelings, actions and words in a positive way.
'At an age when children's vocabulary is developing fast, this little board book can only be a positive influence on educating our young children that 'words are not for hurting...but are helpful and kind!'
-School (January 2010)
