Review Folded Wisdom Joanna Guest Ï 0 Download Review × PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ï Joanna Guest Wisdom highlights the collection of Bob’s notes telling a story filled with universal values that encourages meaningful self reflection – about how we all face successes and failures; express happiness and sadness; and communicate frustration praise and love to one another Heartfelt and full of possibility for the future a father’s folded notes and drawings are timeless reminders of love. I enjoyed reading Folded Wisdom It s a comforting book and a good reminder that we parents can use their gifts and talents to influence their children We never know how our words will impact our kids and it s important for us to be real honest and vulnerable with our childrenI appreciate the time and effort Dad Bob took to write the notes Mom Gloria s insistence on saving them and Joanna and Theo s willingness to share an intimate look into their family life The book felt a little too personal though almost like the story belongs to the family rather than a wider audience As I read I appreciated the wisdom and insights but felt like I was eavesdropping on a sacred moment However Folded Wisdom does contain great advice and a reminder that children never outgrow their need for parents

Review Folded Wisdom Joanna Guest Ï 0 Download Review × PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ï Joanna Guest Folded Wisdom is an inspirational testament to the depth of a father’s love for his children and an intimate look into beautiful raw human communication Within the pages of this book Joanna Guest shares the insightful notes her father drew for her and her brother Theo every day for nearly 15 yearsFor her entire childhood Joanna’s father Bob had a ritual wake up at dawn walk the dog and sit. Joanna Guest compiles and discusses the myriad notes she and her brother received from their dad Bob He created a note with both writing and art every day during most of their school years Bob is an artist a philosophic thinker but most of all he s a dad And like most dads he wants to be good at that lifetime job He wants to raise children who grow into good people who love and appreciate themselves and othersGuest captures this perfectly as she chooses which notes to include in Folded Wisdom But she also gives her readers than just the notes By organizing them she adds a feeling of flow to their spontaneous creation She also offers context with some family history and insights into her dad s perspective on lifeThis is an inspiring book without being preachy It s not a self help book despite all the sage advice contained therein There s no conversation about taking Bob s advice and applying to our lives And yet perhaps its reading community will do just thatGuest also ends the book with a tear out page for readers to follow in Bob s footsteps She even included folding directions So than giving admonitions on how to be Folded Wisdom gently encourages readers to turn around and do this for the kids in their livesImagine if every reader started this tradition with their kids Wouldn t our world become a better place for all the people who d grow up with so much love expressed to themMy conclusionsI read this book from the perspective of both daughter and mother grandmother I was so close to my own dad and remember many of the wise and witty things he said But like Guest s father Bob the most important thing I received from my dad was unconditional love And what I would give for a treasure chest of his thoughts like thisThe notes Bob wrote to his young children are uite precious But I loved the notes from their teen years the most The ideas get complex and the connections to current events grow stronger He s preparing his kids to launch while wrapping his brain around having an empty nestThis is a kind of gently illustrated memoir of parenthood And at the same time it felt like a daily wisdom book because each entry is relatively short Never mind pigeon holing it into a genre Just go buy a copyAcknowledgementsMany thanks to Celadon Books and the author for a copy of this beautiful book in exchange for my honest review I will treasure itOriginally published on my book blog TheBilbiophagecom where you can find many reviews of memoirs and other books
