While others of Wangerin's individual short stories stand out above the rest (e.g., "Ragman"), I think this is his best collection overall. It hangs together as a cohesive body of work, with stories about childhood and parenthood, from his life as a child, a pastor to children and their parents, a parent to his children, and finally as a parent to his aging parents. If there's one story in this collection which sort of embodies the whole, it would have to be "Turn and Become Like Little Children ...more

I loved this book, my first time to read Wangerin. He paints tender pictures of children, parents, a Down Syndrome sister-in-law, and children of elderly parents who parent their parents telling simple stories beautifully. This book helped me to see life through the eyes of others. Every chapter moved me deeply. Who should read it? parents for sure, but almost everyone who wants to be challenged to love others more fully and to grow in understanding toward our fellow man.
I have had this book on my shelf for some time, but it took the opportunity to hear Wangerin to get me to find this and read it. I would have been better served if I had read this while my children were small. My kids would have benefited also. However, at the time, reading about parenting was not high on my list. I was too involved in the day to day activities

I like Wangerin's style of writing. It seems apparent to me that each word is carefully chosen and each idea is thoughtfully created. The
I've been reading this off and on for over a year now. I finally finished and every thing I read was just a small delight, from stories about his own childhood, his children, or how to bring up children of the church in the faith. I really enjoyed this collection of essays. Though I absolutely love his fiction, I'm finding Walter's non-fiction collections to be the most moving and memorable of his writings.
Such a wonderful reminder to cherish your moments with your children and how to let/encourage them delight in their childhood.
