Summary: We all use many words each day. This book shows the different kinds of words we use such as loud and soft. It also shows what hurtful words do and what you can do to stop the hurtful words. The last two pages give good tips on how to use this book in starting a positive discussion with a child. The ideas suggested are age appropriate for the baby to preschool audience.

Content: Excellent- words are simple yet powerful, vivid illustrations, great parent discussion and behavior tips
Message: Excellent- not only points out the problem with hurtful words but also gives positive ideas (what to do instead, what to do if you didn't stop words), promotes good character traits without preaching the skills
