Overview

In their first book, Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers said that if you ever have the choice in life to sit it out or dance, I Hope You Dance. But every life has obstacles.We all face mountains. Dancing sounds like fun, but what happens when you encounter Mount I Failed Algebra? Or Mount I Think Dad is an Alcoholic? Or Mount My Mom is Always Sad? Then there is Mount I Lost My Job and Mount I Was Left Standing at the Altar. When there is a mountain in front of you, there's really only one thing you can do. You can Climb!

In their second book, Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers tell you what you should take in your backpack when you climb the mountains you will face in life. "Isn't it funny how the things you need to take on your journey don't weigh you down: hope and love, strength and tenderness, faith and joy. Unlike denial or regret, these things put light in your life." Climb! is a book of optimism. It is a book of encouragement. It is a beautiful gift book for climbers who want to "dance with faith all the way to the top of the mountain."

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In life, each of us confronts towering obstacles. Coauthors Mark D. Sanders and Tia Sillers call these daunting impediments "mountains," and they counsel that climbing mountains is the business of life. Even if the forbidding peak is "Mount I Think Dad Is an Alcoholic" or "Mount I Lost My Job," we can master it with our backpacks of hope and love, faith and joy.
Publishers Weekly
Sanders and Sillers (I Hope You Dance) employ the familiar metaphor of a mountain for life's tough spots in this petite motivational gift book-e.g. Mt. I Think My Dad is an Alcoholic, Mt. I'm Getting Divorced and Mt. The Doctor Says It's Cancer-and assure readers that they can surmount all hills if they just get help and get moving. They "don't have all the answers," and the answers they do offer are familiar ones: embrace hope, love, strength, tenderness, faith and joy, and eschew regret, denial and fear. The book's main virtue is not its message, but the unstinting positive reinforcement it offers to those stuck in the doldrums. The authors commiserate with their own experiences of dysfunction, including broken families, alcoholism, a suicide attempt, and depression, and congratulate readers for having already scaled the formidable summits of surviving birth and achieving literacy. And while they acknowledge that climbing life's mountains is hard, they insist there is still ample opportunity for raffish joie de vivre, to "be amazed, be humble, be goofy, be alive" with "some zing, some zip, some zeal." By turns jaunty, cajoling and sentimental, the book's tone, intermittently megaphoned in all-caps aphorisms ("ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART") can at times seem as cloying and insubstantial as a pop ballad. Still, readers in a shallow funk may find its lyrical platitudes and warm reassurances that "YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB" to be an encouraging tonic. (Mar.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
