Growing up - A Classic American Childhood (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


In the spring of 2001, Parade columnist Marilyn vos Savant published a column for parents with a handy guide to what their children should know by the time they leave home. The column inspired an avalanche of email and letters from readers, making this subject the most popular feature in the fifteen-year history of the column. Growing Up is a lovingly written primer that imaginatively combines the humor of Mark Twain with the practicality of Dr. Benjamin Spock. Including hundreds of activities, skills, and experiences, for kids aged three to eighteen, Growing Up contains at least several lifetimes' worth of wisdom sprinkled throughout its thirty-two chapters, with over 1,000 items on everything from car maintenance to career choices, hiccupping to great posture. This is a classic work and a gift book as well to be treasured by the whole family for years to come."
