As parents and teachers know, yelling comes naturally to children.
This friendly, encouraging book, geared to preschool and primary children, introduces and reinforces where and when to use an “indoor voice” or an “outdoor voice.”
The author tells young readers, “Your voice is a powerful tool. How you use it is up to you.”
Vivid illustrations show the times and places for an indoor voice, the ways people ask us to quiet our voices, and times when yelling might occur. But yelling hurts people’s ears and feelings.
Children learn that they can quiet their voices and use their words to talk about a problem. “Think before you yell, and use your words well!” Includes a special section for parents and caregivers with activities and discussion starters.
The board book is for toddlers. The expanded paperback is for kids 4-7.
