As another commenter mentioned, hitting is only on one page and describes a specific situation (hitting a sibling). The entire book also assumes that the example undesired behaviours are because the child is "mad". A child doesn't necessarily hit, squeeze the cat, scribble, or stick out their tongue out of anger.

This book only addresses hitting on one page. I expected more.

HASH(0xa6855798) out of 5 stars Examples are a little odd June 8 2006
By H. Lee - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I agree with the reviewer that found it odd that one of the examples in the book suggested that instead of sticking out your tongue you should lick an ice cream cone. ?? The examples were a little strange and the book isn't completely focused on hitting.

A friend of mine owns another book on hitting called

Hands Are Not for Hitting by Martine Agassi Ph.D. I recommend that book as a little more on target for those focused on correcting a hitting issue.

HASH(0xa668d5e8) out of 5 stars How to hit! May 30 2009
By Jenna Reads - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I purchased the gift box set "Little Do's and Dont's" with the idea it would be a helpful leaning tool for my 3 year old daughter. The "No Hitting" book was included in the set. She had never hit anyone, but had started to have fits of anger (perfectly normal for her age). We practice positive discipline and try to teach her what TO do when she is angry. As I turned each page and read, she listened intently and seemed to really enjoy the book. However, the first time she got mad...what did she do??? She hit her little brother!!! This is something she had never done. The babysitter told me that my daughter got mad at her and scribbled on her drawing. Yesterday, she stuck her tongue out at her father...again something she had never done. Tonight, she hit me in the face! Whoa! I so regret reading this book to her. Rather than learn the appropriate actions for venting her anger, she has copied the inappropriate actions of the child in the book. Children learn from modeling and they especially love to copy the behaviors of other children. "Monkey see, monkey do".

PLEASE, if you child has never hit anyone, or squeezed the cat, or jumped up and down when he is mad or scribbled in someone else's book or stuck out his NOT read this book to him/her. It wil

HASH(0xa668dd20) out of 5 stars cute book but not ideal to teach about "not hitting" Aug. 4 2006
By JulieRez - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I ordered this book to reinforce with my 2 year old why hitting is wrong. My son doesn't hit alot, but at age 2, he gets angry and doesn't know how to express his feelings. I was hoping that a picture book might help him to identify his emotions and maybe identify some empathy for the person on the receiving end of the hitting.

While my son likes when we read read this book, and can easily recite from memory the mantra "that's not ok", he doesn't really make the connection to his own angry feelings and what to do with them.

The title of the book, "No Hitting" is also a little misleading. Only the first page actually addresses hitting; the rest of the book addresses other inappropriate behaviors that kids have when they are mad (like squeezing the cat, jumping up and down while yelling and screaming, scribbling in sister's book, etc). Each page starts with the phrase "I'm mad. I want to (fill in the blank). That's not ok, but I can..." When you lift the flap, you see an alternative to the inappropriate behavior. The weird thing is that the alternatives are not at all useful. Even as an adult, if I were so angry as to want to hit someone, I don't think I'd be calm enough to ask for some pots and pans to bang away on (and neither is a 2 year old).

As a matter of fact, my son got angry at the cat the other day and tried to squeeze her (which he'd never done before getting the idea in the book). Lucky for us, our kitty is pretty fast!

So, as an educational tool - not so good. But the illustrations (as with all K. Katz books) are cute and my son really does enjoy the book and pulls it out almost every day.

HASH(0xa687d03c) out of 5 stars That's not okay... but I can do this instead May 29 2005
By Emma's Mama - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Good manners and teaching your child ways to verbally express themselves rather than hitting, squeezing, scribbling, sticking out their tongues or throwing a tantums.

Each page starts out the same with ' I'm Mad.... and ends with " That's no okay, but I can.... After a few reading your child knows how each page starts & ends. Which makes them feel or at least my daughter feels like she is "reading" the book with me. I like that that Karen Katz draws children of all nationalities. My daughter also loves to help me lift the flaps on each page.

I'd love it if this book was also put out in board book form.

HASH(0xa687aed0) out of 5 stars Not as Good March 16 2006
By S.A.L. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is true to form, beautiful colored images that young children love to look at, but the story is weird. It talks about how to deal with frustration other than through hitting. However the advice didn't really make sense...the author writes that instead of sticking your tongue out at someone, stick your tongue and lick an ice cream cone instead....????? I didn't get it, and I didn't want my kids expecting me to give them ice cream everytime they got angry!

Her other books like Where is Mommy and Wiggle Your Toes are better.
