I am so disappointed in this book.
I wanted to love it for myself, and read it to my four year old grandson, but he is already a deeper thinker than this, so I won't bother.

The book itself is pretty to look at, but as superficial and maudlin as it gets. It's made up of little aphorisms that are not even thought provoking enough for a refrigerator magnet. Some of them just made me think, "Oh please! Give me a break!" The book definitely didn't make the cut at our house.

There are countless stories on my bookshelves, that I have seen gently tap in to the heart of a child. Stories that make possible the understanding of eternal truths that shape our shared human experience in this world; even at a very young age. Christopher Robin comes to mind, but there are dozens of smaller works.

C.S. Lewis: "Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard
of brave knights and heroic courage."

True for everyone.
