For example, a page of "Biting" says the following:
"When new teeth come in, your mouth may be sore.
When new teeth come in, you may want to bite.
But teeth are not for biting.
Ouch! Biting hurts."
Whereas the first pages of "Hitting" ask:
"Hands are not for hitting. What are hands for?"
... and nearly all the remaining pages have one-word responses to that question; e.g. "Playing" or "Building".
There's nothing wrong with the book, it just wasn't what I expected.
She has never been a hitter or a biter, but more likely to give out hugs and I would really like her to stay that way.
