Publisher's Summary

"Mommy, I used to be a tall baseball player."
"Yes, you will be a tall baseball player someday."
With a look of exasperation, he stomped his foot and hollered.
"No! I was a tall baseball player - tall like Daddy!"
What was my son trying to say to me? Did he mean...he couldn't mean...was he trying to tell me that he was a grown-up in a previous lifetime?
At the tender age of two, baseball prodigy Christian Haupt began sharing vivid memories of being a baseball player in the 1920s and '30s. From riding cross-country on trains to his fierce rivalry with Babe Ruth, Christian described historical facts about the life of American hero and baseball legend Lou Gehrig that he could not have possibly known at the time.
Distraught by her son's uncanny revelations, Christian's mother, Cathy, embarked on a sacred journey of discovery that would shake her beliefs to the core and forever change her views on life and death.
In this compelling and heartwarming memoir, Cathy Byrd shares her remarkable experiences, the lessons she learned as she searched to find answers to this great mystery, and a story of healing in the lives of these intertwined souls.
The Boy Who Knew Too Much will inspire even the greatest skeptics to consider the possibility that love never dies.

When I read the description of this book, I couldn't help but want to read it. My daughter knew too much at the age of 2. She talked about her other mommy and daddy. This book makes me wish I had talked to her more about it. Crazy, strange, amazing things out of the mouths of babes.

please re-record this book by a professional

this book might have been a good book, except she was a rank amateur narrator. Remember hearing a story report by a freshman? This was on par with that experience, except you didn't pay for it. I eventually began to think this writer, this mother, this narrator was either too cheap to hire someone to do the reading, or has too big of an ego to let it go. Hopefully there is a nicer reason why she made the decision to force herself on us. It made a first book sound like a first book.
I am sorry I had to write this, but I think it's fair to let her know and any potential buyer. I wished I had bought the book and read it myself. I'm sure I'd have enjoyed it more.
