A cute book that teaches kids alternate ways to take out their frustrations, so that they will not hurt anyone or anything.

This is the first book my three-year-old daughter ever connected with on an emotional level. She wanted to read it four times when we first checked it out at local story hour program.

This one is okay; not one of her better lift-the-flap books. It takes the modern child-rearing line that you can never just tell a kid something is wrong; you must always give them alternatives: don't hit your brother, hit a drum! My daughter did not enjoy this quite as much as the other books in this series, but she did enjoy it.

Megan recommended this author, and I happened upon this one at an online sale, so I thought I'd give it a try (especially since my kids love to hit). I didn't think they'd like it since it tells them to NOT do something, but now it's one of their favorites!

This book was really cute. It will help young students with positive redirection. This book would be agreat resource if their was a behavior problem in the class.

It's a bright book. Now my son is thinking of alternative ways to express his anger. Great work.
