Excellent book and really brings home the point. After reading this book 3 times, my 2 1/2 yr old boy didn't hit again. It was very effective. Recently our cat hissed and swung at him and my son, now 3, told me to read the 'Hands are not for Hitting' book to the cat! Really!

I purchased this book for my son as he moved into an older class in his daycare that had a lot of hitting going on. As we read through this book he knows each page and says to me little things about what I am reading. When I say hands are not for hitting they are for ... he yells hi! and waves his hand hello. He is not even two yet and totally understands. I also recommend Teeth Are Not For Biting by the same author.

This is a really cute book that hit home for our 2 1/2 year old about learning not to use hands for hitting.

Great book! Really helped my son, who has autism, visualize why he should not hit. It explains and illustrates what good things our hands can do.

My son loves this book. It is simple, to the point and has wonderful illustrations and colors. I wish there were more of these.

This book is a wonderful resource for parents that have children that hit. I was having problems with my 3yr old hitting other children. I believe that this book helped her to understand how hitting makes other people feel and that hands are not for hitting. I would highly recommend this book to parents or caregivers that are having this problem with small children.
