Words Are Like Faces
Written by, Edith Baer
Illustrated by, Kyra Teis
Edith Baer’s Lucid rhymed couplets and Kyra Teis’ colorful illustrations express
the significance of words in everyday life and seek to underline the intricate interlinking
of the world of language and communication to people. Although the couplets are easy
to memorize, the underlying meaning demonstrates the role of language in building
a human community which connects, corresponds, informs, and nurtures through dialogue.
The beautiful illustrations display the many different faces of children and how
words can affect all of us. The book teaches us to treat words, like children, carefully,
and to embrace them by speaking, writing, and listening to them.
