For Those That Care For Children….

before the school bell ringsI can remember the day  I picked up this book.  I was in college, walking out of class and noticed a pile of books sitting in the hallway that were free to take.  I picked this one up because #1 – my major was Elementary Ed ,#2 – it was super skinny and looked like an easy read, #3 – I was a nanny at the time.  I wanted as much advice as I could get – but I didn’t like to read.

This book has sat on my bookshelf and traveled with me for 12 years and I finally got around to reading it.  What a WONDERFUL little book!  If you are a parent of a preschooler, volunteer in the church nursery, babysit the kids down the street, have grandkids or are planning to have your own kids – READ this book!

A few quotes from the book:

“Every question a child asks is  a real inquiry and needs an answer.”

” Children learn most effectively in a place where love abounds and people feel connected.  They learn best in a place where they don’t feel rushed, where they are cradledin stretches of time.”

As a busy mom of 3, I know it’s easy to lose touch with what’s best for the kids in an attempt to stay afloat in our culture.  This little book reminded me what is really important.

Enjoy! 🙂 Mama Nice
