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".

These are the things the author learned in kindergarten, things that one forgets when one enters graduate school or the boot camp we call LIFE. Share everthing. Play fair. Don't hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don't take things that aren't yours. Say you sorry when you hurt someone. Wash your hands before you eat.

Yes, all of us need to be reminded about the most important things that we've forgotten. He covers much more than I can type here.

I thought this would be a list of things the author learned in kindergarten. It's really a bunch of stories he originally published in the Kansas City Times. The actual list is on pages 6-7. How anyone comes up with this list by reading the stories is beyond me. Plus the fact that this has been going on for almost 20 years. What a load ...

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Here Fulghum engages us with musings on life, death, love, pain, joy, sorrow, and the best chicken-fried steak in the continental U.S.A. The little seed in the Styrofoam cup offers a reminder about our own mortality and the delicate nature of life...a spider who catches (and loses) a full-grown woman in its web one fine morning teaches us about survivng catastrophe...the love story of Jean-Francois Pilatre and his hot air balloon reminds us to be brave and unafraid to "fly"...life lessons hidden in the laundry pile...magical qualities found in a box of crayons...hide-and-seek vs. sardines - and how these games relate to the nature of God. All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten is brimming with the very stuff of life and the significance found in the smallest details.
