An unlikely friendship develops between an owl and a mouse. Ozzie helps Ruthie understand that we have the privilege and responsibility to choose our thoughts, attitudes, and words wisely. He shows us how our words and actions can enhance our own life, as well as the lives of others, or cause much pain and sorrow. Ruthie is very grateful for the life-changing advice Ozzy has given her and so is everyone around her!
We can all benefit by learning and remembering how kindness, goodness, and gentleness serve to affect our lives for the better and that expressions of love have a way of softening and helping to create open and tender hearts.
The delightful illustrations are a fun and heartwarming way to emphasize the power of words and acts of kindness.
