And the best part is that this guide works. It's a simple philosophy for your kids to get involved with actually caring and sharing compassion. It's not complex, but understandable and honest. I can't say the same for most parenting books I've read. This book stands out on its own.
A refreshing read for all parents -- young or old. Good stuff, Craig and Marc!
Look we get it, you did a good thing, you had wonderful parents (grandparents), you raised the moral/ethical bar, etc. etc. ... Let's get that over in the introduction and speak to the book's purpose without constantly going back to re-affirming your own worth. It's like an Oprah interview (no wonder she endorses Kielburgers...) where regardless of the guest and value of their comments, it always comes back to her.
It's too bad really as the book is slick - very nicely laid out with some lovely contributions from a number of well-known activists. (I hesitate to use celebrity, even though some are, as it cheapens the contribution just by mere association with a machine aka. Hollywood that feeds society's consumerism, indifference and fantasy.) Some of the content is very good too. However, it's just too bad we can't remove the Kielburgers from their own book.
If you love Craig and Marc's work with Free the Children, you'll love this next addition!

An amazing introduction (to me) of the Kielburger brothers. Very inspiring, especially for parents of young kids.Published 7 months ago by MLeland
