Words are not for Hurting - helpful book

Lately I've been asking my school boys to read during snack time.  They like pretending to be the teacher, and it seems to make the after-school-but-before-dinner-crazy-time a little better.  Love that! 

One of my favorites:  Words are Not for Hurting
Good message for everyone born with a tongue...
'cause whoever made up "sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words will never hurt me" must have been high.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
(Dr. Seuss, The Lorax)

"No one means all he says,
and yet very few say all they mean,
for words are slippery and thought is vicious."
(Henry Adams)
