Written with humor and humility (essential ingredients for me, Mary's book provides practical, original tips for raising awesome kids. "When You Say Thank You Mean It" is not only a gift to parents, it is a gift to humanity. I didn't have it in my hands five minutes before giving it to my favorite postal provider and recommending also to my family physician. When books are "Hot" you have to share the good news and this one is smokin! Include business card pages for people to tear off on your future editions Mary, this book is destined for global enjoyment. Huge Hugs for a great gift!

Mary O'Donohue's book gives parents what amounts to a fun and easy roadmap to follow in their endeavor to see their children grow into responsible, caring, and giving adults. She has broken 12 important values down into 12 meaningful lessons, focusing on one value each month, with several associated activities, so that children can really come to understand what each means to them, and how they can and should incorporate them into their daily interactions with others. The approach is nothing short of genius, and educators and others involved with caring for children should pay close attention to the methods in this book.
Mary has given us all a great gift. Take it. Use it. And share it with others. It's the only ethical thing to do.

I finished the book wishing that it had been available during the covered wagon era, when I would have used it on a daily basis. But wait---I'm not that old. And neither are my grandchildren.
I think they're going to like it.
