The Best Behavior Series

Return to Shop

The Best Behavior series uses simple words and delightful full-color illustrations to guide children to choose peaceful, positive behaviors. Kids, parents, and teachers love these award-winning books. All include helpful tips and ideas for parents and caregivers.

Hands are for saying hello. And for playing, sharing, clapping, counting, helping, building, being kind, and staying safe, but not for hitting.

This book reinforces two main themes: violence is never okay, and every child is capable of positive, loving actions. Children learn and practice fun and constructive things their hands can do. They learn alternatives to hitting, from drawing pictures to jumping up and down, talking about feelings, and walking away. Included is a special section for adults, with ideas for things to talk about and activities to do together.
