OrangeReviewStarThe esteemed Ginsburg (Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania) presents a true gem, which beautifully balances such questions as: "How do I protect my child while letting her learn life's lessons?" with poignant specifics ("You might be tempted to do what comes easily; you might even feel like you're a natural, but you'll get bored if you lack interest and the field doesn't challenge you") to create an inspiring yet task-oriented read. Interspersed with heartfelt quotes from youngsters, the narrative will renew parents' appreciation for the struggles of growing up and the oh-so-important things parents do and say that make a difference.
VERDICT With an easy style and research-based advice, Ginsburg has his finger on the pulse of today's parents and children. Read. Learn. Do.
