Out of the mouths of babes...

Charming book that packs a powerful message for both parent and child. We live in such complicated times,and the bar keeps rising for all age groups. Emma is a delightful little girl who discovers that with the right circumstances she is capable of doing great things. With her little finger, she creates a canal that diverts water from a puddle and she realizes that by using her brain, she can accomplish much by applying thought into her strategy. While that alone is a terrific lesson for a child, Dr. Shomer shows us how little Emma then uses her lesson to help her mother with a difficult project, reminding us that while we think of ourselves as our children's teachers, we can learn from them as well. A gem of a book than can be enjoyed by all age groups.

Happy Reading!
