"This book is just fantastic - it is everything that I longed for as a young parent. Rosie Boom has produced an outstanding resource for parents. As a young mother, I spent many hours scouring bookshops and parenting magazines for help in creating family times with our children. I searched for material which taught Christian truths was inspirational and which captured the hearts of our youngsters. This book is what I was looking for. Put together with so much love and care, it will be treasured by parents everywhere. Rosie's passion for educating children, her mother's heart and her concern for her children's character all shine through. But most of all there is something for everyone. The background reading for parents, the stories, mottos, proverbs and sayings for children and the real-life examples from Rosie herself, all add up to a very special publication. I could not recommend this book more highly to all parents, whether Christian or not, who are committed to leaving their children a legacy of character and insight."
