This was one of my better reads in a really long time.  Not sure if it is because I have a little one in kindergarten and some of the arguments I have had is mentioned in this book or what! I have recently had to visit my little ones school and class several times and we have just ended our first nine weeks of school, to give you some idea of how long we have been in school.  It is crazy that one parent has to go to the school so much but when they are in Kindergarten you feel you need to do everything in your power to help them get settled, especially when your child was never away from Mama prior to this big change.

When I found out that my child was going to have to know not only her alphabet, her colors, her name, address, phone number, which is what I would expect a Kindergartner to know by the time they finish, she also has to know how to read what I feel is a third grade level, identify the parts of a book, know how to write, and get those much needed social skills.

This book talks about our babies and what they need not only from us as parents but from Society, our schools, and our teachers.  One of the things he talks about that really struck home was that when a child starts Kindergarten they should be learning through play and not so much structure.   I remember, believe it or not, being in Kindergarten myself and it was always fun.  We played, we took naps, and we learned the structures of school,but without having so much pressures of what we had to know.  My little one so far has come home and taught me Spanish, showed me the sign language she has learned, and taught me songs that she has learned.  That being said, she is nothing like her Mama has she has it made.  She remembers what she hears and sees and so even this program will not be a problem for her, though I may have never gotten out of Kindergarten if they had required that from me.

This is just about school and what they need to be doing or what they should know.  The title is "Their Name is Today", what does that say to you?  To me that tells me that they are our Future Presidents, Congress, House Reps., and Future work force and leaders. We need to give them not only the actually food to survive but we need to be teaching them the life skills that need to be the best Parents, friends, and leaders that can be but to not overwhelm them with the stresses that will come.  It should be fun and stress free for now.
