“Imagine raising your kids without the help of Goodnight Moon or Is Your Mama a Llama? or Hands Are Not for Hitting.”—Jennifer Garner, actress, Save the Children ambassador
"We love this series because they are a fun way to explain basic do's and don'ts' to your child and repetition from hearing the same book over and over gives you a better chance that it will actually sink in." –Baby Let's Shop blog

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.
