A Handbook for Parents of Young Children
I really can’t do any better than this review by Carla Hannaford, so I’ll just pass it along to you and echo her assessment of Heaven on Earth as a “must read” book for anyone working with or caring for young children.
Sharifa Oppenhiemer has given the world a great gift in the pages of this book. The important child-development information is exquisitely combined with the best ‘How-to’s’ I have seen in any book for parents. Her book, is a ready guide that insures joyful, enthusiastic children who learn easily and contribute to their families and society for a lifetime. I have delighted in every page and feel this is absolutely a must read for parents, grandparents, teachers, and perhaps everyone who will ever touch the life of a child.
