Notes

We all know about sticks and stones and how they don’t hurt nearly as bad as words. Anyone who has ever been a child knows just how true these words are. None of us, not one, are exempt from this age-old rule. I would venture to say that this rule gets truer every day. Between tweets and Facebook and emails and texts, we are bombarded with words every single second of every single day.

Marjorie and the Magic Words puts language under a microscope by examining just how powerful words can be. We may toss them around without a second thought, but when words are tossed about, they have to land somewhere -- and when they do, they can sting or burn. Sometimes, the right words can add beauty to the world -- like magic.

Join our brave bookworm Marjorie and her band of famous literary comrades as she journeys through the wide world of words. Close your eyes and listen to surprising sounds and a story that challenges us to speak a little magic into the lives of those around us.
