From "No polluting the world, " to "You shall not make fun of the handicapped, " to "You have to help your more, " to "No punching in the head, " The 11th Commandment celebrates the unique spirituality of children...and helps us take a fresh look at how we can create a better world in which to live.

Reviews - What do customers think about The 11th Commandment: Wisdom from Our Children?
Cute idea, but nothing too profound here. Jan 11, 2007
I'd give this book about 3-1/2 stars. Some cute stuff came out of this project, but I didn't enjoy it as much as, say, Children's Letters to God. Might be something nice to share with children in the context of religious education, to generate discussion regarding moral and ethical behavior. I did really like that children made all the illustrations.
11th Commandment is great with all ages, sexes and religions Dec 11, 1997
I am a licensed clinical social worker in the District of Columbia. I work with children who are in Foster Care. This book has worked out great with my children. They are real appreciative of what they now have and they like reading about children who are also blessed for what they have
