-- Their Name is Today: Reclaiming Childhood in a Hostile World by Johann Christoph Arnold, foreword by Mark K. Schriver.

I'm interested in learning more about this book's promised "creative ways to give children the time and space they need to grow" and how the author proposes to defend "the joy and wonder of childhood."

Hi Gilion,

The concept of your book, is definitely an interesting one, although I am not so sure that the downturn in worldwide society in general, hasn't gone so far as to be irreversible! I would like to think not, so I'll be interested in what you think of this one!

Thanks for the re-tweets and have a great weekend :)

That's certainly a lovely beginning. Hope the rest of the book is that intriguing.

That one sounds really good

Katherine P said...

That's a powerful beginning. I'm curious about how the book delivers on the premise. Sounds interesting!

Laura Pol said...

What a powerful beginning and one I while heartedly agree with!

SherryGLoag said...

Wow I have to agree, a very powerful beginning.

Elizabeth said...

I needed this about 31 years ago, but my son turned out ok regardless. :)

Sounds very good.

Thanks for sharing.
