Anyone who has read any of Eileen Spinelli’s books or Jerry Spinelli’s books knows how talented they both are and if you have ever met either one of them, I know you were impressed my their personality, kindness and warmth. Lucky us, now we have a double Spinelli book filled with daily advice and insight.
In dated entries meant to be read one per day, the Spinelli’s open with a brief quote from children’s literature, write a paragraph of lively advice inspired by that quote, and end with a “Today I will . . .” promise. The entries range from the broad (self-esteem, the environment, gratitude, and open-mindedness) to the simple and specific (Today I will call a grandparent . . . smile at a new kid . . . take a walk . . . and send a snail-mail letter.).
Below is one entry. I am thinking this would be a perfect book to have on your desk and give to a friend. I know I am saying, “Today I will buy this book.” Click Here to read more and buy.
