Format: Paperback
My son is now eight months old. I received this book as a christening gift. I read it at work during my ten to fifteen minute pumping breaks and I ususlly end up crying. Crying not because I am sad - but because the voices of the author and the parents reach out and touch my soul..holding me gently while I fumble my way through these early months. In a world that often feels so isolating the words and stories in this book make me feel part of a larger community. It reminds me of the Mary Oliver poem, Wild Geese, "You don't have to walk on your knees...you just have to love...recognizing your place in the family of things." This book is helping me to feel my place in the family of parents; a family that is both ordinary and extraordinary at the same time.
So often styles of parenting are overly politicized...It makes it hard to listen to that still voice within that guides us better than any book. Rabbi Kreimer has managed to articulate the power that comes when we listen to ourselves and our children. The beauty and transformative power of these stories is precisely in many of the places where we feel so inadequate - our so called weaknesses...Please bless yourself and all the parents and parents-to-be you love with this book - it is, to quote St. Augustine, "soaked through with grace."

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Britta Bolin on November 17, 2000
Format: Paperback
This delightful book is written from a spiritual and maternal perspective. It explores parenting in the frame of reference of a single day beginning with the middle-of-the-night feeding of an infant. The story of "one day" has a "parallel theme" of raising children from infancy through adulthood. The author addresses the beauty and joy of daily life as well as illness, loss, and grieving in the context of parenting. I've read the book a number of times and enjoyed it immensely. It would also work well for a discussion group. Her writing is very insightful and provacative. Enjoy!

I can't believe this book is out of print! I first read it while I was pregnant with my first child and it transported me. Put away all of your how-to books, cuddle up with this one and let your instincts guide you down the path of good parenting....
