There is nobody like a child to look life’s greatest mysteries square in the eye, and there is no writer like Marc Parent to translate a child’s revelations for the rest of us. He tries to teach his sons how to win at his favorite board games but learns instead the joy of making up your own incoherent rules. He nurtures their compassion, they teach him about love and forgiveness in the face of anger. Believing It All is a book about the things we knew as children — about gratitude and playfulness, acceptance and love — that sometimes elude us as adults. Book jacket.
