I read this book in about an hour. The author has a website and several other publications focused on fundraising, organizing boards, etc. This book, while well meaning and actually full of some terrific ideas feels a bit like the kind of "fluff" too many publishers fill the world of books with. I bought two copies of the book at a talk she did in my town. It's important to know that she donated her day which is truly an act of philanthrophy, so she most definitely walks her talk. I was just awa ...more

I had the pleasure of meeting Carol when she was the keynote speaker and did a workshop at a convention I was at. She was friendly, funny, and open. After hearing her, I was very excited to get her book and read. This is a topic that I am very passionate about as my family has charity as part of our family mission statement.

This is a great jumping off point with practical ideas for charity with children. This is more of a how-to and not a philosophical ideals book. It is a very quick read and is

i thought this was a pretty good book. it focuses on the nuts and bolts of "how," literally, to get your kids to volunteer and become involved in the lives and causes of others. it is a fast, easy read and makes good sense. also, there are lots of resources regarding how to find a cause and get involved. i wish it would have dealt a little more with the emotional and intellectual benefits of caring for others, as well as the importance of it all, but overall a good read. ...more

This is a great short book with ideas to help you help your kids serve others. Each chapter has a question as a heading so you can skip it if it doesn't apply to your family. At the end the author has listed some great resources and websites. I found quite a few easy ideas that I'll be implementing with my own kids. ...more

This was okay, nothing revelationary (did I make up that word?) and a bit like Chicken Soup for the Soul books but with a resource guide in the back.
But if you're interested in reading it, take this advice rom a person who reviewed it on Amazon: Borrow the book from your library and donate the money to charity instead. To which I add: donate the money to your library!

Really quick read. Great how-to... really got me thinking about how I can help my kids live in the giving spirit. Also made me think about my behaviors, that they learn from. Good ideas on how to get them involved in volunteering and giving. Author has a great sense of humor.

This book was highly recommended at a conference, and I agree. We should all spend more time giving children the opportunity to try out philanthropy and acts of kindness. The book is a quick read and full of great ideas.

I'm not as impressed with this book as I thought I'd be. I took away some good ideas but there wasn't as much depth as I was looking for. ...more

Good, quick read. Not as many suggestions as I had hoped for, but really good direction on the core ideas.

Fairly dull writing but good solid ideas - ones that I am eager to implement asap. Worth reading - and short! :)
