Item description for Too Small to Ignore: Why the Least of These Matters Most by Wess Stafford & Dean Merrill...

The leader of an international organization that provides ministry to children shares inspiring true stories and well-crafted arguments for doing all one can for children, whether they live next door or around the world, emphasizing how vital children are for the future of humanity. Reprint.

Publishers Description

The time has come, argues Dr. Wess Stafford, for a major paradigm shift: Children are too important and too intensely loved by God to be left behind or left to chance. Children belong to all of us and we are compelled to intervene on their behalf. We must invest in children-all across the world.
There are strategic, persuasive reasons-beyond love and kindness-to invest in children. Today they may snuggle into your lap, if you let them. But tomorrow you may not have access to them in the corridors of power they might occupy. Now is the time to shape the future.
Dr. Stafford issues an urgent call for change. His adventures as a boy raised in a West African village provide an often-humorous and always-captivating backdrop to his profound and inspiring challenges. Wess lived the reality of "it takes a village to raise a child" and calls us to "be that loving village for children everywhere."
This book will encourage you to turn your good, loving intentions into strategic actions and empower you to help change the world-and the future-forever: one child at a time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Too Small to Ignore: Why the Least of These Matters Most?

What Can I Say  Dec 12, 2006
What can I say that hasn't been said here in other reviews? A timely, riveting piece of writing. Highly, highly recommended.
Rick Evans Chaplain Childhelp Of Ohio
Too Small to Ignore  Nov 10, 2006
Informative, well written, and disturbing regarding the abuse that the author and other children suffer in terms of their caretakers. At the same time uplifting in terms of the author being able to overcome the effects of his childhood abuse.
An eye opener  Nov 5, 2006
Dr. Stafford forces us to think about the plight and condition of children outside the industrialized world. And after he makes the case for our consideration he gives us practical ways to help. If you care about the Third World and the countless masses of the next generation growing up there, this is a must read.
A Truly Inspiring Book  Sep 4, 2006
In Too Small to Ignore, Dr Wess Stafford writes of the plight of millions of children worldwide and teaches us that the solution to poverty includes love that leads to hope.

He writes of his upbringing in an African village as the son of missionary parents. His depiction of village life - the important responsibilities entrusted to children, the soccer game with the home made soccer ball, the togetherness after the evening meal - made me feel as if I had missed out on something rare.

The author writes of a dark period in his life during boarding school where he experienced tremendous evil. (Parts of his book would not be suitable for younger children.) That Dr Stafford is able to see how God used this evil for good is a truly inspirational story.

Nor do the inspirational stories end there. The author recounts how the love of a schoolteacher shown to her sponsored child through letters resulted in a bronze medal in the Olympic games.

Compassion, the organization that Dr Stafford leads, offers us a way to bring healing to a broken world. Over the years, we have had the privilege of sponsoring three children through Compassion. It offers us another way to reach out to other children in addition to the 2 boys from Vietnam we have adopted into our home.

Too Small To Ignore makes a compelling case for Jesus' heart for children - and by implication, our call to follow in Jesus' footsteps to care for these little ones.
Awesome. Life Changing.  Sep 2, 2006
I received a copy of this book at the Creation Concert and my two teenage sons have just finished reading it with me. It was amazing--really put things into perspective for all of us. Me, with finding ways our money could be better spent on others. And them, with realizing how much "stuff" they have when compared to the dire situation many children their own age live with. And sadly, we learned, many do not make it to their age. That was so humbling for all of us. Thank you for opening our eyes!

We are happily sponsoring six children now--one for every member of our family. Mr. Stafford's courageous stories of his own childhood, combined with engaging tales that a couple of 14 and 15 year olds found interesting enough to read daily, should help to spread light on the overlooked tragedy occuring right now in many corners of the world. God Bless you Mr. Stafford, your staff, and the current missionaries abroad.
