This novel is comprised of thoughts (expressed through short stories) of daily encounters. It's one of those "feel-good" novels. Some stories are a little more depressing than others. I was on a rollercoaster ride of emotions: a little sad, laughing so hard I'm crying, deep in thought, smiling, and giggling to myself when I have a similar experience. But most of all, it brought me back to childhood. Not necessarily the innocence of childhood, but the sheer enjoyment of life, a constant count of life's lessons. It's perfect for this busy holiday season. If you do not already own a copy, I encourage you to get one (I've seen several on shelves at used bookstores--now that I've read it, I'm horrified anyone would ever want to part with their copy!). It's only 196 pages, and each story is only 2-4 pages. But don't read it all at once (even though, at times, you'll want to devour it) because it won't allow time for the lessons to seep in. It's the perfect way to take a quick break in your busy day to make time for reading and remembering your blessings.

I attended a medical school graduation, and the speaker based his address to the graduates on this book.
When you think about it, really, really think about it, we have learned all we need to know about life by the
time we complete Kindergarten. The medical school graduates, have all they need, now they need to put
it into ACTION !

Robert Fulghum has written a friendly, warm, inviting accumulation of short stories, introspections, and observations. He is obviously a philosopher with great insight into the human condition. Fulghum has lifted my spirits during times of life's dark clouds with excerpts such as this:
"And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK."

Everyone should have the good fortune to read Fulghum!

This has proven to be a great gift for all ages . . . . lots of thought provoking ideas from the past. Those simple little things that can be applied to any situation.

It's true, in the current society, you already finished learning how to function by the time left kindergarten.
Emotionalism rules the day, not intelligence and reasoned higher learning.
Education no longer teaches anything that matters. We're producing indoctrinated flunkies...
'dysfunctional literates', people who can read, but can't reason, just do what they're told.

Fulgum's conversational style makes this an easy, relaxing read. It's full of good reminders about enjoying life and how to treat our fellow man.

Great and entertaining read. This is an older book that probably means more today than when it originally was written.
