9780871299130: All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

When asked what he does, Robert Fulghum usually replies that he is a philosopher, and explains that what he likes to do is to think about everyday things and then to express what he thinks by writing, speaking or painting. This is a collection of his favourite observations, written over the years, that reveal simple truths about small lives with big meanings.

From the Inside Flap:

Most of what I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sandpile at Sunday School. These are the things I learned:
Share everything.
Play fair.
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Flush.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover:

New York Daily News

“Within simplicity lies the sublime.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“A healthy antidote to the horrors that pummel us in this dicey age.”
The Baltimore Sun

“As universal as fresh air and invigorating as the fragrance of a Douglas fir.”
–Los Angeles Times
