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.

Selected as a “Teaching Tool” in Teaching Tolerance magazine The older children get, the more words they know and can use—including hurtful words. Children learn that their words belong to them: They can think before they speak, then choose what to say and how to say it. The book makes the connection between hurtful words and feelings of anger, sadness, and regret. It introduces positive ways for children to respond when others say mean or unkind words to them. And it reinforces the importance of saying “I’m sorry,” two little words that can be a big help. Includes activities and discussion starters that parents, caregivers, and educators can use when working with children.
