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!

Very thoughtful book on the things you learn as a young child carry throughout your lifetime. As I taught Kindergarten, it helped me as a teacher to have a better understanding of what I needed to be passing on to my students.

This is such an endearing book that you'll want to visit it time and time again. It makes you nostalgic for times when life was simple, and actually is a good choice for young adults or perhaps high school grads, who are just about to embark on their life journey. It's a good reminder of all that is good in people.
