A secular, personal development book written for children by two of juvenile fiction’s biggest names, Eileen and Jerry Spinelli, this book seems to be geared towards the 8-12 set, but it definitely has the flexibility to provide for younger kids, especially if a family project is made of it. As a homeschooling mom, I could see incorporating this into our lessons, and it would take no more than 10 or 15 added minutes to one’s day, which is a small price to pay for character building and family time.
Each daily entry begins with a quote. Today (August 21) it is “Every painting is a magic window that your own imagination can open and climb through.” It is from a book called A Quiet Place by Douglas Wood. After an appropriate quote, there is a short, 3-5 sentence blurb on the quote and it’s meaning. All of this is followed by a one or two line goal statement for the day: something to keep in mind, or a small project to do (one of the days was to go owling, another was to visit a library or bookstore). I see this book as a springboard for family discussion, not something to just tuck into a birthday present and tell the child, “well, here you go!”, because some of the blurbs are just simply too brief for the heaviness and complexity of the topic (internet safety, cigarette smoking, etc.)
I like about 90% of the entries. Some of them I feel bordered a bit on preachiness of personal habits.Read more ›
I must confess I did not read the book daily, rather I read the entire book at one sitting.
Then I started on a daily basis to read each day. Every day is wonderful guide to how
improve yourself and your surroundings.
Truly a lovely book for you or a thoughtful gift for friend or family. Thank you Jeri Atkin
