With more than 35 million copies of his novels in print in over 40 languages worldwide, Henning Mankell is an international phenomenon. In this powerful work, he tells the story of a young African orphan adopted by a Swedish man and whisked away to his new father's country. There, the boy, dubbed Daniel, finds himself swallowed by a bizarre landscape of snow and mud. Always in his mind are thoughts of his murdered parents, calling him back to Africa. But Daniel's path is marked by tragedy, and his homecoming seems an impossible dream.

    " Awesome!! The best book I've read about kids. I wish I could by a copy for every parent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlice | 2/16/2014

    " Highly recommend. Really clear, nonjudgmental (unlike lots of parenting books), and very helpful tactics for parenting so that your children thrive emotionally and, yes, do what you want them to do. I plan to consult this book again and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haven | 2/16/2014

    " As someone who grew up in a dysfunctional family I have chosen to read as much as possible about parenting. This book is an excellent guide on parenting using the whole brain and it is chock-full of excellent advice on how to raise a loving, well-balanced and emotionally well child. The book also gives advice to parents on how to implement the lessons into their own lives. I highly recommend this book, it is exactly how I would have preferred to be raised. The best part is that it's easy to read, easy to understand and has guidelines in the back with lessons for all ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 2/12/2014

    " Neurology for children? Yes! The more you understand about children's developing brains the less surprised you are when they color on your oven . . . again. My patience, compassion, and ability to empathize with my son instead of locking horns with an "unruly toddler" has made parenting so much easier and thus my life better. I can now help my son at 18 months understand his own emotions and I have plans in mind to help him grow up emotionally intelligent. Probably one of the most important parenting books I've read is right here. Another plus -- there are cartoons showing how to converse which means your husband might actually flip through it and pick up some tips too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 2/4/2014

    " Very user friendly. Good information and research supported techniques in dealing with difficult behavior for parents and those helping parents. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/30/2014

    " Some great tidbits and I like the explanation of how the brain works. I felt like the information could have been shared in about half the number of pages. Plus a lot of the strategies are common sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 langa | 1/25/2014

    " A small book that is jam packed full of information. Fascinating information about neuroscience and the growing brain. I love the cheat sheets and grids by age at the back of the book that helps parents and caregivers consider the strategies and how to apply them by age. Also, I really appreciate the illustrations and even the sections that can be read to children, to help them understand their brain. I find myself saying to my husband as we are trying to contain a meltdown, "she's stuck in her downstairs brain, she can't access logic right now. let's help her calm down and we can talk reason and logic then." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melinda | 1/20/2014

    " Wonderfully written book. Offers insight into children as well as adults you are reflect on their own childhood as they parent. I gained several useful tools from this book, and will return to it over the years as my children age. So glad this is being added to our home library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maegan | 1/17/2014

    " A valuable read for anyone who interacts with kids- not just parents. And anyone with a brain, for that matter...pun intended! This is a very user-friendly, simple-terms approach to understanding aspects of the brain and real-life application of the concepts, with handy cheat-sheets! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sébastien | 1/14/2014

    " It's not easy to find a book that uses recent understanding about brain development and translates it into practical parenting strategies. I recommend this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashlee | 1/2/2014

    " This is an incredible book for therapists to read. It really helped me understand the importance of attachment theory and how we can combine biology with behavioral interventions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rainbow | 1/1/2014

    " Helpful, but seems difficult to accomplish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 12/23/2013

    " One of the best parenting books I have read, it has helped tremendously. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Efi | 11/26/2013

    " This book is about growing through parenting. It provides great tools for connecting and guiding our children but also improving our own awareness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 11/26/2013

    " Definitely a book worth having as a reference. I should re-read this one again sometime. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 11/25/2013

    " To say I read this book is an overstatement. I could only bear to skim it. The are a few good tidbits of information in it; but in an apparent attempt to make the material accessible, the writers dumbed it down too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sayra | 8/24/2013

    " Highly recommended for parents and clinicians alike. Practical advice and easy to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skye | 5/16/2013

    " Loved learning a little about how the brain works and why certain parenting strategies help your child's brain develop AND solve tantrums at the same time. Brilliant! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marci | 5/7/2013

    " Reading . . . .This is intriguing but one book I wish I had in paper or hardback rather than on my nook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gervase | 11/26/2012

    " Some interesting information and useful strategies (though not exactly revolutionary) for dealing with children in ways other than "command and demand". There is a helpful "refrigerator sheet" at the back of the book with summaries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 10/11/2012

    " A fundamental tool for parents. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Conealpetterson | 6/15/2012

    " One of the best parenting books I've read. They take neuroscience and make is very understandable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Milano | 5/17/2012

    " An excellent read for parents who want to understand more about "why" their child behaves the way they do, rather than just reacting to their behavior. I will definitely be using these techniques in my parenting practice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samara | 4/8/2012

    " Too simple-minded to fill an entire book; more of an overblown magazine article. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lillian Shuff | 4/5/2012

    " Some if not most of these tools come naturally and therefore the book may serve in part as positive reenforcement for what you already do. There are several tools in here, however, that surprised me. The information on why these strategies work was very helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryanne | 10/31/2011

    " Loved it. Very well written and easy to understand. Written for the parent and the child. Now to apply! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/3/2011

    " A great book about children's developing minds with practical strategies for raising children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/16/2011

    " good, easy read with lots of great info and helpful examples. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peggy | 4/30/2011

    " This is a change of pace for Mankell. Since I enjoy his mysteries I was disappointed in "Daniel". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 4/1/2011

    " The culture clash and the inner workings of the mind and heart of a 10-year-old boy uprooted from his native Africa and taken to Sweden are beautifully rendered. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 3/16/2011

    " Loved the story even though it hurts a bit to read about all the prejudice. "
