Overview

Readers will recognize the special children in their own lives or the special children they once were, and will turn to Lessons from Our Children again and again for wisdom, comfort and inspiration.

From the author of Lessons from Mom and Lessons from Dad comes this third volume in a familial trilogy, sure to inspire readers of all ages with the innocent wisdom and magic of children. The third volume in the author's Lessons series celebrates children's gifts to us all: innocence, wonder, laughter, joy, kindness, courage, resilience, uncanny wisdom and love. This collection will inspire readers to look for and embrace these gifts in their own lives, whether through the special children they know and love, or through the child that dwells deep within each of us. As with its predecessors in the series, Lessons from Mom and Lessons from Dad, the author gathered stories from a wide array of sources--parents, grandparents, blended- and extended-family members, foster parents, teachers--all of whom recognized that a child's love and unique wisdom forever changed their lives for the better. Readers will rediscover wonder, innocence and irrepressible joy--gifts that only children can bestow. Each of the heartwarming, from-the-mouths-of-babes selections in this compilation honors the important role that children play in life, emphasizing that adults need children as much as children need adults. From the hilarious to the profound, the selections in this book illustrate how invaluable children are to deepening our understanding of life--and of ourselves. Most of all, the wisdom of children expressed in this collection will remind readers of the most important ingredient for achieving success and contentment in life: love.

This book is for anyone who has ever loved a child or who often fondly recalls magical childhood moments. Readers will recognize the special children in their own lives or the special children they once were, and will turn to Lessons from Our Children again and again for wisdom, comfort and inspiration.
