All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
by Robert Fulghum
This month I thought we might go back to the basics with “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum. In a time when we are forced to look at common things in an uncommon way, this book will resonate as readers rediscover how universal insights can be found in ordinary events. As the world is forced to change everything we know, this book reminds us of the very stuff of life and the significance found in the smallest details.
“Share everything. Play fair. Don’t hit people. Clean up your own mess. Don’t take things that aren’t yours. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody. Flush. Wash your hands.” Life will examine us continually to see if we have understood and have practiced what we were taught that first year of school. Now more than ever.
