Words and Your Heart (Hardcover)
This is a sweet little book and a great Valentine's Day gift. Words matter. They have the power to cheer us up or make us sad or confused. A great book for discussing with children (and adults) how language can shape our reality.
-Beth— From Felicitous February Staff Picks
This book is about your heart (the little bit inside of you that makes you, you!)
The words we listen to can affect how we feel.
Some words can do amazing things and make us happy.
And some words can really hurt us (we all know what sort of words those are).
Our words have power, and we can choose to use them to make the world a better place.
Simple, direct, and emotive, Words and Your Heart’s message is that words have extraordinary power–to harm and to heal, to create and to destroy, and to spread love.
