9781897435311: Turtle on a Fence Post: Wisdom Graduates Need to Make It in the Real World, 365 Days of Life Lessons

TURTLE ON A FENCE POST is "the ideal gift of wisdom and inspiration for the high school graduate."

  • The ultimate 'life after high school' reference book -- a guide to help our children and their friends navigate the complicated 'real world' they will face after graduation.
  • Why 365 lessons? Because it is important to learn something new every day. Each lesson is short -- it can be read quickly over breakfast or during a study break.
  • A theme for each day of the week. Monday's message is motivational; Tuesday's and Wednesday's are hints for advancing a career. Thursday's and Friday's are general life lessons. Saturday's focus is on social aspects, while Sunday's spiritual guidance comes from many religions, philosophers and teachers.
  • High school and university textbooks provide the book smarts; TURTLE ON A FENCE POST will help with the 'life smarts.'

About the authors

In 1992, he invested in a food manufacturing company in BC -- Jim is now the CEO. It has been cited as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies. He and Jane have three high school age children. They live in a suburb of Vancouver, B.C.

JANE PRATT
A former Miss Teen Edmonton and first runner-up Miss Teen Canada, Jane married her high school sweetheart and was a fitness instructor, travel industry professional and model before becoming a stay-at-home mom to their children. She has served as president of her Beta Sigma Phi chapter (a philanthropic women's organization) and president of the local chapter of Canadian Parents for French. She has been voted 'World's Best Mom' on a number of occasions by each of her children.

"This great book provides just what is needed -- a unique dynamic of spiritual and social lessons -- the key that separates those who succeed from those who fail."
-- Rich Van Huizen, pro beach volleyball player on FIVB tour
