I was honoured to receive a great review of my picture book, Words by Jennifer Van Huss at One Heart One Family. I am excited to share it with you. To visit her site and read the full article, click on the image at the bottom of the post.
Thank you for your kind words Jennifer!
“As a lonely letter embarks on its greatest journey to find meaning, it discovers it is not alone. It encounters various letter combinations and soon learns the power it holds. Confronted by two distinct paths, it must make an important choice.”
I was recommended this book after a friend and I discussed her daughters problem with bullying. I had high expectations from her glowing review and wasn’t disappointed. This book was amazing. It appeals to both children and adults alike with a powerful message explaining the effect one’s words can have. The pictures are simple and in black in white, but the message it portrays is clear and meaningful.
I love the way the book takes you through the emotional journey of the letter “e” as he tries to decide which path he should take to his ultimate destiny. One is ‘demanding and harsh’ and the other is ‘inviting and mild’, both explore themes such as needing to belong, right vs. wrong, relationships and the power of words. This book brought on a complex yet compelling conversation with my children about how powerful words are and the impact that making the wrong decision can have on another person.
If you are looking for a book to help your child understand the impact of their words, WORDS by Lora Rozler is the book for you!
