Book Overview

Teach toddlers safe ways to express big feelings

Toddlers are still learning how to speak, socialize, and understand their emotions. It's common for them to react with their hands when they get frustrated--but hitting is never okay. What to Do When You Feel Like Hitting helps toddlers understand why hitting is not allowed and shows them how to react to their feelings with actions that are safe and kind.

This illustrated entry into no hitting books for toddlers features:

  • Alternatives to hitting--Kids will learn how to use gentle hands to squeeze a stuffed animal when they feel upset, scribble a picture to get out their frustration, and practice taking deep breaths to calm down.
  • A light touch--The language is kid-friendly and positive, encouraging toddlers to understand and communicate their feelings, not just keep their hands to themselves.
  • Engaging illustrations--Big, beautiful pictures help kids see the ideas in action and keep their attention on the page.

Get the best in no hitting books for toddlers with a storybook that helps them learn empathy and compassion.

   Cute illustrations
I bought this because it was recommended on my IG page and I thought it was worth a shot for my 23 month old who was starting to hit. We've had it for a few days and she is enjoying it. She carries it around the house yelling. It seems to really understand the words. It gives examples of safe things to do with your hands, when you feel like hitting. I thought it would be out of her age group, but it's definitely not! This book will be useful for a long time. This book is very good.
   Not age appropriate
The language in this book is not suitable for a toddler. The writing is for older children. To read it to my toddler, I had to change the words a lot.
   Love this book
My 2 year old was hitting and pinching us all the time and we couldn't seem to get her to stop. Sonwr and I love this book. The illustrations are pretty and it uses repetition to teach a lesson. My daughter likes it. She doesn't like hitting books every night. We saw a dramatic change in her after we used the suggestions within it. Hitting went from a couple of times in an hour to only once or twice a day. It has been almost 2 weeks since she hit and she immediately said no hitting! Not safe! And then hugged me. I couldn't recommend it enough.
   Lesson learned
We both enjoyed reading this book. The approaches used to guide littles on how to navigate Big Feelings were good. Showing different ways to calm down and not hurt others.
This book is what we needed. Helping young people learn to change their anger into something that works for them builds strong emotional skills. The illustrations are very inclusive. My cousin, a toddler, has been helped by this book. I'll be suggesting this book to everyone I know. Thank you for that!
   Wonderful guide for kids for learning self regulation skills!
The book is filled with realistic tools and strategies for children to use when experiencing big emotions and want to hit. I read it with my patients and children.
   Wonderful book for young, spirited kids that includes practical solutions
This book is very well done. My 3.5 year old son loved the illustrations and could relate to the page where a baby knocked down his sister's tower. My son is more likely to use strategies that I suggest to him, as we have been working on ways to cope with big feelings, and we got this book at the perfect time. I plan to use this with young patients and recommend it to their parents, I am a child clinical psychologist.
   Great tips in a kid-friendly format!
This book was wonderful. This book was written in a language my 2.5 year old could understand and it gave her ideas of good things she could do with her hands instead of hitting her. She was practicing different ideas. She has been asking me to read it again and again.
   Great learning book
One of the best toddler hitting books. I like how it says to calm down, but also many other choices. The characters in the book are cute. My son is going through a hitting phase and this will help a lot.
   Perfect for that "expressive" toddler in your life!
I bought this book for my nephew, who sometimes expresses his emotions through hitting. He got a kick out of acting out all the suggestions in the book. The section at the end for parents caregivers explains some of the key adult terms. I will definitely get a copy for my son when he gets a little bigger to manage his own emotions.
