Your words are amazing! This book is about your heart. The little bit inside of you that makes you, you!

A new mini hardback gift edition of this very timely book about the power of words - and how we use them. Told through the eyes of Pip and Cat , this book beautifully demonstrates the importance of what we say - both positive and negative. Thoughtful , warm-hearted and completely non-preachy , this is a book that has already resonated with large numbers of children, whose teachers report a sea of change in the culture of their classroom after reading it.

'It's a great way to encourage discussion and to share the power of words' Parents in Touch
'A beautiful book that tells a strong story that spans all generations' - Donna J
'Truly beautiful and effective' - Jo E
'Possibly the most beautiful present I have ever received' - Lisa W

A universal message , for a world that always needs a little more kindness by an exciting new talent in picture books, Kate Jane Neal.

I read it to AS100 aged 6 aged 6

5 stars
This is a lovely book about the power of words and your heart "the little bit inside you that makes you you".

It has simple yet powerful text, great illustrations that support the text and a good use of making the text part of the illustration to tell the story.

I think a book that people of all ages young and old can take something from.  A lovely book which can be read together or independently for early readers and above.

This will be a book that I think we will treasure for years to come and one we will refer to at several different points in our life good and bad.  I would definitely recommend this book.

I read it to Ivy aged 5 aged 5

5 stars
Such a simple yet thought provoking book. This isn’t like anything I have read to Ivy before and we both really enjoyed it. She asked lots of questions after reading about kind words and how they make people feel. This is a brilliant book for teaching young children the power of words and emotions. Beautiful illustrations. Highly recommend this book. I will be purchasing as a little gift for my nieces and nephews for Valentine’s Day.

This book could not have arrived at a more opportune time. It was intended for my youngest (who greatly enjoyed it), but it is my oldest who has appreciated most as she is struggling greatly with a ‘friend’ who is not using words well. It really struck a chord with her.

It is such a simple book with such a strong message. I think the simplicity of it means that the message comes through even louder and even clearer.

I think this may well be returned to time and time again for both sibling arguments and friendships.

Thank you Toppsta

I read it to Little One aged 3 aged 3

This book is brilliant. A read which encompasses a simple message but completed beautifully. 
We were delighted to read this toddler friendly sized book with its cheery red front cover. 
The book is all about words. It explains that often words can make us happy and make us feel good but on occasions when hurtful words are used, it doesn't feel so good.
With my eldest daughter 3 and at nursery I truly enjoyed (and appreciated) this book. The illustrations are brilliant and the text is easily understood for its target audience. 
The book encouraged much chat about an array of things including friendships and how we need to be more aware of what we say. 
It is a book to be treasured but also to be shared as gentle reminder on the power of words.

I read it to CH12 aged 5 aged 5 & to VH17 aged 1 aged 1

5 stars
This isn't a story book but a beautiful little book with a powerful message that everyone has a voice to be heard and that voice should be used kindly. 

It's written in a similar vain to 'Have you filled a bucket today'. Books with a message that's explained at a really simple level so everyone can understand. 

This book is the perfect size for my little ones to handle. The illustrations are simple yet beautiful. And the message is important for everyone of any age to take something from, including me!

This is such a beautiful book, I think it could be appreciated by all ages! It has a really powerful message and I could see it being used to great effect in pre-schools and schools to teach about the power of words. I really loved the simplicity of the illustrations, they are quirky and fun but don't detract from the text. I think we will be revisiting this book regularly as it's message is so important!

Wow. What an amazing heartfelt book!! The words are used beautifully to try and explain feelings. My 4 year old neice has found this really very helpful when dealing with emotions especially since being at school. If she has a problem she remembers the book and how it would make her feel. A brilliant tool in educating children of all ages to think about their words towards other people :)
