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." In classic Best Behavior style 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 ourvoices, and times when yelling might occur. "What happens if you're mad or frustrated or really, really excited? Your voice gets louder and LOUDER." But yelling hurts people's ears and feelings. Children learn that they can quiet their voice 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 Best Behavior series uses simple words and delightful full-color illustrations to guide children to choose peaceful, positive behaviors. Select titles are available in two versions: a durable board book for ages baby-preschool, and a longer, more in-depth paperback for ages 4-7. Kids, parents, and teachers love these award-winning books. All include helpful tips and ideas for parents and caregivers.
