I received a free copy of this product as a member of Zondervan's Z Blog Squad in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

This book arrived and would be fantastic any time of year, but I especially thought it would make the perfect little gift for Valentine's Day:

We've loved two other children's titles by Rick Warren, God's Great Love for You and The Lord's Prayer, but I think this latest book is my favorite yet.

Its sweet, colorful illustrations make my heart happy just looking at them and the message that the pages impart is one that should be shared with every child, over and over again.

The book's message is that words are powerful and can change someone's life.

While many other selections out there focus on this topic, often they devote quite a few of their pages to the negative examples of this.

This book focuses on all the positive examples - including the value of sometimes not saying anything, but just being present and listening.

There is one spread that illustrates the negative impact words can have, but I feel that small mention is far more helpful to discourage the behavior than going into further detail about it.

Although this is a board book, it is a title that spans the ages and I feel would truly appeal to a wide range of ages, from birth to the utmost limits of snuggly read-aloud-time on the couch.

Pick up a copy for your family here and help reinforce to your kids how important it is to use words for good.
