Ouch! Moments When Words Are Used In Hurtful Ways by Michael Genhart is a lovely book for younger children that you can use to start a discussion about hurtful words.
Sometimes kids use hurtful or ugly words to put down other kids, whether they mean to insult or are just going along with the group. These hurtful words often carry a deeper meaning that many children aren’t aware of.
This book would be useful for starting conversations about how kids who are seen as being ‘different’ (or have families that are different) may hear hurtful words about them and even be bullied.
Ouch! Moments When Words Are Used In Hurtful Ways by Michael Genhart is ideal for children between the ages of 4 – 7 years of age.
