Tihands offtle: Hands Off, Harry!
Author:  Rosemary Wells
Series: Kindergators
Recommended for: Preschool to maybe 1st grade
Pages: 32
Call Number/Link:  E WELLS

 

Synopsis:
Harry has trouble keeping his hands off his classmates until Tina thinks of the perfect piece of gym equipment to teach him about personal space.

Review: 
The incomparable Rosemary Wells has created a series of books to help with issues that might come up in a classroom setting–preschool or kindergarten.  This book is one of the few books I have seen that discusses strategies for kids who touch other people and their things.  It is a funny story, but it teaches a lesson and gives action steps.  It is also much more nuanced than a title like “Hands are Not for Hitting.”  I get questions about issues like this a lot, and this book is very helpful.The only other book in the series currently appears to be Miracle Melts Down about temper tantrums in the classroom.
