Item description for Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand: How to Create a Culture That Cares for Kids by James Vollbracht...

Overview
In the tradition of the bestselling "It Takes a Village" comes a practical guide for creating a child-friendly world. Through a rich blend of anecdotes and creative practice strategies, this book affirms the age-old wisdom that the power and responsibility to heal communities rest in everyone's hands.

Publishers Description
Children's lives today are complex, stressful, and dangerous. Kids are overscheduled, come home to empty houses and neighborhoods where they don't know a soul, and in school, face violence-all too often from their peers. In Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand, James Vollbracht provides a blueprint for transforming our unstable and disconnected culture into a healthier, supportive one. Vollbracht bases his approach on six overlapping circles of community-our personal circle, families, neighborhoods, larger communities, business worlds, and elders-and outlines simple actions within each circle that will help rescue our kids. Through a rich blend of heartwarming anecdotes and creative, practical strategies, Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand affirms the age-old wisdom that the power and responsibility to heal our communities rest in our own hands.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stopping at Every Lemonade Stand: How to Create a Culture That Cares for Kids?

I love this book!  Jan 5, 2003
This book was short and easy to read - I read it in two days (while being a mom to 2 boys!). The author describes 6 circles: the individual, the family, the neighborhood, the community, businesses and government, and our elders; and gives examples of steps that people all around our country our taking within these 6 circles to create a safe culture for our children.

What I like most about this book is that it left me feeling hopeful and enthused about the steps I would take. The author does a great job of showing the reader that one doesn't necessarily have to spend a lot of money or tackle an overwhelming task in order to make a positive difference in our world; even little steps that fit in to one's lifestyle DO make a difference.

This book will change a reader's thoughts from, "I know something needs to be done, but what can I do?" to "What great ideas, I can start today!" I definately recommend this book! As a matter of fact, I'm buying copies for the principle of my son's school anf the mayor of our city!
