What a wonderful little book, even if you don't have children.
I normally do not read books like this, but being a grandfather of a 4 year old, I picked it up and read it. And RE-read it and then read it again. What a wonderful little book. I learned more about love, death, poverty, success and the future in a half hour than I have learned in books that took me weeks to read. I especially like the story about a Catholic nun who believes in her faith interacting with a Muslim boy who believes in his faith. Too bad we don't have politicians reading that story.
The lesson I took away from this book is one we have all heard before - listen to the children, they have a wisdom and an understanding on life that can help us all face a very scary world.

Format: Paperback
Haase's book is wonderful and wonder-filled. So many of the insights of the children remind us that wisdom is not retricted to the aged. It is wonder to read again of the world as seen and so often deeply understood through the simplicity of children. The author reminds us to look again carefully at our world and all the wonders in it and look when possible with the eyes and understanding of a child. I was touched especially by the sketches of the children who touched her life. I have taught for over 30 years and I can't believe how many words of wisdom simply passed me by

Picked up this book and couldn't put it down until the last page. Then I had to share it with others so I ordered 3. One recipient ordered 4 more. So many people will be enjoying the wisdom of little children. Also, the photographs are so poignant; they deserve long, loving looks. Thanks to Sr. Bridget for putting these stories into print.

A friend gave me this book and as soon as I opened it, I knew I had bought Christmas stocking stuffers for all of my family, friends and former teachers. Don't miss this wisdom that is bought for such a bargain.

The little gems of wisdom are presented in a clean and undistracted manner. Editor Haase is clear in her presentation and keeps the focus on the children. Her insightful snapshots of children she has taught illustrates a keen mind and an open hearts to the litttles ones of the world
