WORDS ARE NOT FOR HURTING
By Elizabeth Verdick. Ideal for reading aloud, this attractive picture book uses age-appropriate vocabulary and expressive color drawings to teach children what words can do. Listeners learn how to respond when others say hurtful things, and they discover the power of saying "I’m sorry" when their words hurt someone else. Includes a section with activities, discussion starters, and suggestions for children (and adults) when there is fighting at home. Grades K–2. Resources for children. 9" x 9".
