Rather, this Whose Kids Are These? Rather, this book is shaped like something of a "Bible Study" style, with chapters comparing a new step-mom's trials as like Jonah whilst in the belly of the big fish, and with Bible verses sprinkled frequently and liberally about to offer guidance and encouragement.
I think, overall, that if I was a Christian step-mom, I would enjoy this book. The tone is light and encouraging, and for as far as I read - I didn't finish the whole book - there didn't seem to be an excess of blaming or negativity. I do appreciate that the Bible quotes are from more accessible translations - New International Version and New King James Version - which makes the reading much easier.
I've chosen to give this book 3 stars as a "not my type of book, but still seems pretty good" and post this review to help prospective buyers - at time of writing, I find it difficult to parse from the Amazon market blurb that this is a Christian book for a Christian audience. Hopefully this review will help people with their purchases.

That transformation, for Rodari, is inseparably connected to fairy tales.
For him, indeed,. Fairy tales are not useful for raising diligent and limited executors, docile and trusting consumers, satisfied and efficient subordinates, that is, men necessary to a world infused with the myth of productivity.
In this sense, fairy tales are highly unproductive, like poetry, art and music. But man must also be able to imagine a different and better world, and live to create it.
A Turning Point in Typhoid Control
And so […] we defend them: because we believe in the educational value of utopia, an obligatory transition from a passive acceptance of the world, to the ability to criticise it, to a commitment to transform it If children are silent in school, the teacher asked himself rhetorically, how can they possibly become capable of communicating their ideas?
Before, not only did compulsory schooling end at 11 years of age, it also divided children, at a young age, into students who would continue their studies in high school and those who were directed to the world of work. Law no. The great themes of accessible culture and social equality thus began to loom on the horizon of the younger generations through the renewal of the educational system, the economic boom and a heated cultural debate.
This name suggests the aim was for them to be caring institutions, rather than with the potential to educate. The case of Emme Edizioni, founded by Rosellina Archinto in is emblematic of this movement. Today after fifty years it has been demonstrated that those books worked very well.
As I always say, if I had had a beard and a moustache I would have been taken more seriously.
These are new characters but the story is still the metaphor of the ant and the cricket. Another interesting personality is Donatella Ziliotto. These foreign writers had not yet been translated in Italy and were far removed from the Italian cultural and literary tradition. This was a watershed: despite numerous criticisms from the more conservative fringes of society, it was a resounding success.
The protagonist, Teodora whom everyone calls Tea Patata is 5 years old and observes the grown up world of siblings and parents from her perspective. These are modern, open, free and frantic people perfectly in line with the times, but Tea is ill-fitted to that situation. She wants everything to be in its place, to enable traditions, to live with a slow, calm quiet pace.
The old fairy tales propose mild, passive, inexpressive women solely concerned with their beauty who are decidedly incapable and inept. But it did not stop there. Titles like Rosaconfetto 43 , La vera storia di un bonobo con gli occhiali - The real story of a bonobo with glasses 44 , Arturo e Clementina 45 , represented a real novelty for Italian publishing and enabled a large public of young female readers to observe reality from a different point of view, presenting true and effective gender equality.
The most disregarded of the intuitions of the period in question is, to date, that of having placed childhood itself at the center not only of the educational-imaginative processes, but of a social thought aimed at the design of a different society. So, today more than ever, we need the courage to look back and start from what was best produced in the years around '68, not to emulate or anchor nostalgically to a myth, but to have certain bases from which to start to bring childhood back to the very center of educational interest; and more besides.
