An eminently clever and very absorbing book that teaches just how precious and important every word truly is--and how just one extra word, misspoken, can have enormous consequences. Children will dive right into this professionally illustrated book and its valuable message will stay with them long after the last page is relished.
It wasn't such a big deal to reveal the secret, thought the washerwoman as she idly prattled to her friend. But oh, what horrible repercussions! It's a practical joke, just a nickname given to an elderly Shul gabbai--nothing too major, right? But what happens when that "innocent" nickname is what stands between a lost boy and his salvation?
Includes an illustrated addition: 'The Kids' Guide to Proper Speech', making this book a complete teaching tool and one that parents and teachers will enjoy as much as their young audiences.
