This wonderful story is told with a clear-eyed voice, and a wonderful sense of humor. The book evokes the sadness and small, joyful moments from a childhood of long ago. I stumbled upon this book via a friend, and simply treasure it. Short, uncomplicated and yet filled with a resonant - and resilient - spirit. By the time you reach the last page, you may be moved to tears.

A story of meeting the world for the first time.

Buechner does a masterful job of introducing us to the world that we live through the lives of children. In his usually fashion, Buechner takes the lives of people and shows how salvation and grace can flow through them, even though, at times, they are unaware. Treat yourself to a little taste of life, with all of its bitterness and sweetness in this wonderful read.
