Readers Favorite - 5 Star Review —
"...Well written and beautifully illustrated, Use Your Words teaches children about the importance of proper communication. When parents are making small talk, asking about a child’s day and what they learned in school, regardless of which language is used at home, they are literally interested in being involved in their children’s lives. To have the child talk nonsense in return, in a language that they know their parents will not understand, becomes a tiresome bore rather quickly, but until the roles are reversed, the children cannot understand what all of the fuss is about. I like the cultural flavor which has been added to Use Your Words as well. Subhash Kommuru has given a general glossary at the beginning and a wonderful recipe at the end of the book, enabling the reader to gain some cooking experience and linguistic knowledge in Hindi culture. I enjoyed the important message which Use Your Words brings to the younger generation and recommend it to readers aged 4-8 years, so they might learn how to properly partake in the art of conversation."
