Modern pedagogy teaches us that fighting is good. However, you need to know how to do it right!
He started it! is a game-book designed to teach children aged 7 and up to fight properly, allowing them to grow and experiment with different ways of relating to others.
The protagonists of the story are Tito, Rocco and Maria, three siblings who often quarrel with each other. By following their adventures and observing each one of their emotional worlds during a conflict externally, young readers will be able to reason about the topic of quarrel and develop strategies to be put into practice in real situations at home and at school.
He started it! it is a game-book, with many decisions to make. It is, in fact, a story at crossroads, where the reader will repeatedly find him or herself faced with a choice of multiple paths to follow, each one marked by a different colour, in order to decide how the story will continue.
