Book Description

Justine is almost ready for bed when she finds out- her bear is missing! Not long after, she discovers her brother, Benjy, is the one who took it without permission! Justine is not going to stay quite about this...
What is Justine going to do make sure he'll never do such a thing it again? How will they go back to being friends again?


Give it back! is the third book by the bestselling author Shimrit Nothman, writing about conflict resolution for kids.




This book has a twin book: "No, it's mine" , which tells the story through Benjy's eyes. And like in life- these two stories sound nothing alike...


Give it back! is the second book in the series: Conflict resolution for kids.


This series of books focuses on common conflicts and arguments our children will likely encounter early on in their lives. Power struggles over choosing clothes, bedtime, and sibling rivalry are just some of the subjects discussed in this series, through an engaging story and colorful illustrations.


These stories can assist parents in addressing a particular argument, or in teaching the children various methods of conflict resolution, and all in a fun way.

* * * * * Conflict resolution sensitively illustrated: Part II (Sep 15, 2013)

By

TOP 50 REVIEWER
Shimrit Nothman, with a BA in Psychology and Communication from Haifa University and a MA in Conflict Resolution form Tel Aviv University, has focused on her own history of fear of public speaking and stage fright by becoming an honored debater. She now writes and speaks widely about conflict resolution and here she demonstrates that depth of knowledge in a very well written book with excellent illustrations by Basra Owais.
If by chance you haven't read Shimrit Nothman's book NO, IT'S MINE then try to obtain both that book and this one because they tell the same story from different points of view. It is a story about sibling rivalry and resolutions to same. IN this book the main character is Justine (Benjy's sister) who notices her bear is missing from her toy box. Distraught, she searches the house, and fears her missing bear may not find his way home. But at that point she finds Benjy her brother using her teddy bear as a knight for his Kings and Queens game and she is outraged, getting her bear back through a temper fit by Benjy. She seeks advice from her toy bunny who suggests she act like nothing happened when she sees her brother in the morning. Further advice form her toy kangaroo encourages Justine to simply request Benjy not to use her toys without asking. Even her teddy bear advise Justine to give Benjy a hug and share love. 

Shimrit Nothman adds pages in these books to advise parents how to cope with and constructively deal with sibling rivalry, so the book is not only the opportunity to show children both sides of a disagreement, but a chance for parents to jump into the lesson! 

About the Author

Shimrit Nothman was always terrified of Public Speaking. Perhaps that's the reason that the first thing she did at university was to join the university's debating team. 

After completing her BA in Psychology and Communication at Haifa University, and concluding her role as the President of her University's Debating club, she joined the Debate Company. Shimrit lectured all around Israel, teaching children and adults from all walks of life how to overcome stage fright, and acquire effective communication tools.

Shimrit Nothman had perfected the art of Conflict Resolution at a very young age. Her method was: AVOID CONFLICTS AT ALL COST!

Later on in life, she decided that other methods may work better, and so she attended Tel Aviv University, where she received her Masters in Conflict Resolution. 

Shimrit lived in Australia for a few years before returning to her native Israel with her young family.

Today she writes conflict management children's and parenting books as well as a biweekly column at the JPost about conflict-resolution in the family, named Family Matters

4.0 out of 5 stars Conflict Resolution January 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an engaging book for young children. The story definitely allows the parents to discuss sharing and permissions with their children. I was disappointed to find a few spelling errors in the book. They may have been a translation problem, but they could easily be corrected to create a perfect book for children. We are teaching them to read, think, and write when they read books and they should be error free. They are minor errors, but they are noticeable to the adult reading the book with the child. I recently taught a writing segment to first and second grade classes and I was amazed at their comprehension level. I still recommend this book highly as a teaching tool for parents on conflict resolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Ask Before You Take Other's Toys" October 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another funny story with Justine, brother, Benjy and that cute Teddy Bear...(My niece wants to know why Mom will not buy Benjy his own cute Teddy Bear)...This author has an excellent illustrator and their often forgotten in the writing process, but sometimes pictures speak a thousand words alone..Just look at the cover of this book..They are cute and funny..That alone holds a child's attention...

Well, this time Benjy may learn to ask first before touching..He can't seem to keep his fingers off of his sister's Teddy Bear....While poor Justine is running around the house thinking she has lost her stuffed animal....You know where she finds it..Some little boy is in trouble again..When Justine returns to her room will her magical, stuffed talking, animals give her good advice again...Will she ever let brother, Benjy play with any of her toys again....

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by this author July 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a cute story! I've read the previous book by this author: Children's book: Justine, we're late! (Conflict resolution for kids) And was very happy to discover there was a squeal. This time Justine is getting into a conflict with her brother over a toy he borrowed without asking. It's nice to see her stuffed animals are still there by her side to offer some good advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Figuring out conflict resolution September 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Arguments and fights are a part of any child's life. Resolving them is another story altogether. The amount of yelling, pushing and name calling involved is many times overbearing for us parents. It's good to find a book that doesn't shy away from this topic, and suggests helpful ways to tackle siblings' conflicts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perspective April 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book in order to teach perspective and conflict resolution to my 1st graders. I really like the fact that Nothman wrote a book to go along with this one that addresses the brothers perspective. It's a great lesson to see both sides if the story and have empathy for each sibling.

The book is very sweet. At the end there is a parents' guide. I had a quick look at it and it seems very interesting. Each of the stuffed dolls was chosen for a reason. Reading it made me think about how many different conflict resolution styles there are out there.
