Common sense stuff, but this book serves as a refreshing reminder of raising kids to be honorable citizens, not necessarily the super competitive, perfect-in-all person. Mogel mentioned that we cannot 2nd guess what skills kids will need in 20 years ([mine]just as 20 yrs ago, people didn't guess the importance of today's software engineering). So it maybe fruitless trying to raise kids to be super-generic, super-competitive beings while missing the "amazing show of childhood". On the otherhand, qualities such as honesty, good work ethics have serve people well for centuries in literally every field of arena.

The Narrator ruins this book
Would you try another book from Wendy Mogel and/or Carrington Macduffie?
The narrator is so bad that it is hard to rate the content of this book. Is it unreasonable to think that she would make an effort to learn the pronunciations of the Hebrew words; there weren't even that many of them? For example, most people know how to pronounce "Passover seder". Macduffie pronounced this Passover Cedar! Her performance made me believe that she was a bored as I was.
What didn’t you like about Carrington Macduffie’s performance?
Any additional comments?
I am going to read this book for myself, but perhaps I will listen to this sometime when I can't sleep at night because Macduffie put me right to sleep!
