Product Description

It only takes 26 letters to make millions of words. Some are short, some are long, some are kind, and some are not. The older children get, the more words they know and can use--including hurtful words. This book is written especially for ages 4-7, a time of growing vocabularies and increasing social interaction. Children learn that their words belong to them: They can think before they speak, then choose what to say and how to say it. They explore simple, positive ways to respond when others say hurtful things to them. They discover the power of saying "I'm sorry" when their words hurt someone else. Made to be read aloud, this book uses age-appropriate vocabulary and delightful illustrations to teach little ones big ideas. A special section at the end includes activities and discussion starters for home, school, and childcare.
