An outstanding read... hard not to read in one sitting, reaches out and pulls you in... regarding fetal alcohol syndrome...
This book should be required reading for everyone who cares about reducing poverty or helping children.
Really opens your eyes to the effect that alcohol can have on your life and what it does to our children and their health.
As an adoptive parent of a child (now young adult) born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, I highly recommend this book -- for pregnant mothers, teachers, professionals of all kinds who work with children or teens, and well, just about anyone. Very powerful, and true.
Wonderful touching story about a man and his Native American son who has fetal alcohol syndrome. National Book Critics Circle Award Winner.
