The Word Garden

Available June 25, 2009
The Word Garden is a lovely book with a sweet message. The book centers on an analogy–how words are like seeds and both can result in something wonderful if they’re handled with care. The author’s thoughtful message is a gentle reminder that words can sometimes hurt and we should choose our words carefully lest they become weeds in our garden. It’s a reminder that we can all use from time to time.
