What did you like about the book? I loved the concept of creatively combining and expanding vocabulary for children to formulate new words to express peace, love, encouragement and compassion. By focusing on positive vocabulary words, and further jumping off in limitless ways to combine them, it allows children to practice, form and verbalize these words to encourage other students. It’s a creative book to start the process and spread the positive rewards of empowering language.
