"This activity book for children can be the beginning of a child's discovery of the joy of giving." -- Frances Hesselbein, Chairman of Leader to Leader Institute, Former CEO Girl Scouts of the USA.
"The Giving Book is in itself a gift to all of us who seek a greater level of philanthropy in our world. It is a wonderful, engaging tool for parents and others who want to instill in our children a strong sense of giving. It provides children an opportunity to use their own skills and ideas in creating a better life for someone besides themselves -- building higher self esteem and a belief that one person can make a difference in the lives of others. My deepest appreciation goes to Ms. Sabin for her contribution to our children and our future!" -- Shay Bilchik, President/CEO, Child Welfare League of America
"The greatest gift we can give our children is a tender heart and one full of compassion for others. Giving is a joy. This book takes an old concept and involves the children in the giving process, teaching them firsthand the benefits to giving." -- Editor, Wee Ones Magazine

For the Mom and Dad, I highly recommend The Golden Rule Workbook: A Manual for the New Millennium (available in eBook also) which is far more comprehensive in it's teachings and self-help techniques to really help you tackle the hard stuff, thus becoming a more loving, selfless parent who can teach their children and all others, by example, the great importance of caring, kindness and compassion.
Parents can appreciate the focal point and regrounding the Giving Book provides. Sometimes it is difficult to encourage a child to think of charitable works when surrounded by 24/7 news of "tragedies and misfortunes". The Giving Book is gentle and firm support for the good impluses and desires of the child to make a difference in the world and to be happy about it. Even when (shudder) a parent doesn't have the time to attend to each step of their good works, they can record them and share them later.
Ms. Sabin has given a gift to us all, and hopefully her good deed and those of the many "owners" of her book will multiply over the years. I heartily recommend this book for your child or as a gift to children's groups (scouts, clubs, church youth programs) to inspire and reward the best in our kids.
