By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER on 13 Dec 2009
Format: Hardcover
As we know, words can heal, encourage, inspire, bring laughter, convey love. Really, words are small miracles that can work wonders - if only we can find the right ones when they're needed. With ARTFUL WORDS AND THE ILLUSTRATED QUOTE we find not only appropriate words but the heartwarming illustrations of Mary Engelbreit. As she says "words and pictures are like the lyrics and the melody of a great song....they have always gone together." Indeed, they do.

Thoughtful quotations and sayings are arranged by subject - seven in which Engelbreit has found inspiration: Love and Family, Friendship, Inspiration and Encouragement, Wisdom and Learning, Childhood, Holidays, and Pure Mary.
Little is more endearing than the pages devoted to children which includes among others this quote from Charles Dickens, "It is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us," and from Graham Greene, "There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in."

A section regarding friendship will make readers want to pick up the phone and call someone who is dear to them, and the words concerning love will touch hearts. My special thanks to Sara Jeanette Duncan for this apt reminder, "One loses many laughs by not laughing at oneself."

ARTFUL WORDS is a volume worth returning to again and again to savor words of wisdom and enjoy Engelbreit's unique illustrations.

I love Mary! 13 Mar 2007

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mary Engelbreit is a favorite of mine: her artistry,her calendars with timely and appropriate quotes from many sources, and most recently her children's picture books and Mother Goose. Having this little book just with her illustrations and quotes is an often-pick-up-book!

M.E. 18 May 2013
By Joy Rider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love her artwork, quotes, books, calendars, everything. Her commercial success is inspiring. It is wonderful to see and support a successful woman artist who is 'doing her own thing'. M.E. is a wonderful role model for artists and especially women artists. She was true to herself and is inspiring and uplifting many with her words and works!

I love ALL of my Mary Engelbreit books and this one is no exception. I can read it over and over and still enjoy it every time. Her charming art work is perfectly matched with familiar quotes that I have heard all my life. Thanks, Mary, for giving us so many sweet, homey, delightful ways to enjoy these bits of wisdom from the past.
