“Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”- Proverbs 16:24
Bonnie and her children often talk about tasting your words. The concept is simple: mean words taste yucky and kind words taste sweet. Bonnie decided to share this idea in the form of a picture book for other families to enjoy and put into practice. Her hope is to inspire children and adults to make the world a sweeter place- one kind word at a time.
The “yucky drawings” were done by Todd Bright, Animator/Illustrator with many filmography credits and projects for clients such as Walt Disney Imagineering and Warner Brothers. The family presented in the book is a nod to their actual blended family because…Todd is Bonnie’s step-brother!
Bonnie’s second book, Catching Thoughts, is a quiet, imaginative story that teaches readers (young and old) how to acknowledge unwanted thoughts with curiosity and compassion, while choosing to focus on thoughts that bring beauty, joy, and calm into their lives.
