Although I have not read this book myself (No time for reading these crazy summer days!), I heard about the book from the discussion group on the ZERO TO THREE Policy Network’s LinkedIn page. The author, Lisa Poelle, M.A., teaches at City University of New York’s School of Professional Studies and consults to parents, teachers, caregivers, and early childhood programs.
The Independent Publishers Group, which is selling Poelle’s book, had this to say on their website in an overview of the book: “Biting is one of the most aggressive toddler behaviors that parents and childcare providers have to handle. Though the first bite can often come as a complete surprise—a normally mild-mannered child takes a chomp—the habit is a difficult one to break. This helpful guide provides parents and caregivers with recommendations for prevention, immediate intervention, and long-term solutions, and includes a puppet show script and a song that adults can use to help children learn to communicate without biting, hitting, or other inappropriate behavior.”
If anyone reads this book, I’d be glad to get your feedback about it to share with my readers!
