Robert Fulghum's wit and warm humor make this book a joy to read. I like that his essays are short and poignant, allowing even the busiest person a chance to sit back and reflect on the beautiful simplicities of the good things in life.

I already have two copies, so I posted one here. This is one you'll want to keep and read again and again.

This book was popular when I started working in a bookstore in 1988. The advice and articles are still timely and easy to read. This would still be a good book for a graduate, teacher, or student, despite its "age".

Uncommon Thoughts on Common Things by Robert Fulghum...

Most of what I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sandpile at Sunday School.
These are the things I learned:
Share everything
Play fair
Don't hit people
Put things backs where you found them
Clean up your own mess
Don't take things that aren't yours
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody
And much, much more!

I thought this was a great quick read. He has a wonderful way of turning small and everyday ordeals into great tools to teach us things we need to know.

Little 2 to 5 page vignettes, some only indirectly related to Kindergarten (although it explains why everyone sings "Itzy Bitzy Spider"). Apparently, he used to live in my old neighborhood in Seattle (Leschi) probably in the early 80s, so some stories I can relate to, geographically.
