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.

    " One of the best and most moving books I have read in a long time! It's a must-read for anyone who interacts with children, which is pretty much everyone. I loved reading Wess Stafford's stories of growing up as a missionary kid in Africa. He also shared many other stories - both heart-warming ones and tragic ones. It is awesome to see so much good that has come out of his horrific childhood experiences. "

    " This might even be a 5 star when I am finished with it. I am reading this book now. Dr. Stafford writes with such passion, this book is truly inspiring. Taking from his life living in a remote African jungle, Stafford blends an eye opening look into the lives of children who live in poverty. He challenges how we think about poverty and the way we view children. This book will open your eyes and expand your heart! "

    " I was given a copy of this book free at a leadership conference I attended at my church. The author Wess Stafford is the CEO of Compassion International. In the book he talks about his childhood as a missionary child in Africa and the great things he learned from the people of the African village he grew up in, but also the horrendous things he experienced at a boarding school for missionary kids. He uses the backdrop of his life's story to talk about how children are our most important investment and how God is calling us to help out children in need. "

    " One of my favorite books. Anyone who has calling to work with children/has a passion for children should read this book. It is excellent. "
