“This book is just fantastic – it is everything I longed for as a young parent. Rosie Boom has produced an outstanding resource for parents. As a young mother, I spent many hours scouring bookshops and parenting magazines for help in creating family times with our children. I searched for material which taught Christian truths, was inspirational and which captured the hearts of our youngsters. This book is what I was looking for. Put together with so much love and care, it will be treasured by parents everywhere. Rosie’s passion for educating children, her mother’s heart and her concern for her children’s character all shine through.” – Mary Grant, Co-founder of Parents.Inc. and editor of Parenting Magazine
