Really Important Stuff My Kids Have Taught Me
# UK5042 Paperback, 168 pages; 2015
Never, EVER miss the fireworks on the Fourth of July...if you wait until you're really sure, you'll never take off the training wheels...don't worry about crossing the street until you get to the curb...if you're going to fight, use pillows...don't sit down until the game is over...if it's in your way, climb over it...ask why until you understand...
This heartwarming little book pairs jubilant photographs of kids doing what kids do best - playing in the dirt, snuggling with puppies, coloring outside the lines - with uplifting quotes and simple tips for living life with youthful courage and abandon. It's downright adorable, even before you read the brief anecdotes about amazing real-life kids like three-year-old Sarina, who survived being lost in the Siberian wilderness for eleven days; four-year-old Alex, who opened a lemonade stand to raise money for cancer research; and third-grader Katie, who planted a vegetable garden to feed the hungry in her community.
