Synopsis

Hands are Not for Hitting by Martine Agassi

This fresh edition of a Free Spirit classic presents charming new illustrations along with the familiar encouraging message of the original. Children learn that violence is never okay, that they can manage their anger and other strong feelings, and that they're capable of positive, loving actions - like playing, making music, learning, counting, helping, taking care, and much more. This title includes a special section for adults with activities and discussion starters.

Reviews

The simple but important message...helps children understand that they have the power to choose not to hurt people. -- Teaching Tolerance
