"What I Know" Book Review and Giveaway!

By: Roger Emerson Fishman with Joe Rohrlich
I was given the opportunity to review this very fascinating and amazing book! One of my lucky readers will get a copy of their own!
It is one of those books you want to share with everyone you know! The type of book that you can either sit and read from beginning to end, or just flip through the pages and read random pages at a time. A book to learn from and be inspired by! "What I know" is a book filled with quotes and stories form the young and the old on topics regarding: Friendship, Parenting, Integrity, Perseverance, and so much more!
"What I Know" proves again how insightful and intelligent children really are, at such a young age, I think a lot of people take for granted how observant children can be. Also the knowledge and life experiences of a person who has lived a full and long life is truly something to behold.
I would like to share some of my favorite quotes from the book:

"Happiness and caring is the key to the door to your heart. When you have no key and no happiness, then your heart is just locked."
-Erica D. (10 yrs. old)

"When you have a big problem, it can feel like someone is sneaking up and scaring you. You might want to scream and run away at first, but that won't solve the problem. Turn and face it and believe in yourself."
 -Olivia P. (10 yrs. old)
