A guide based on the author's popular "Parade" column suggests hundreds of activities, skills, and experiences that define a classic American upbringing.

Norton Pub
An inventive, delightful gift book for parents and kids to treasure. In the spring of 2001, Parade columnist Marilyn vos Savant published a column for parents with a handy guide to what their children should know by the time they leave home. The column inspired an avalanche of email and letters from readers, making this subject the most popular feature in the fifteen-year history of the column. Growing Up emerges from this unprecedented phenomenon, a book that recalls the best-selling All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, a lovingly written primer and gift book that includes hundreds of activities, skills, and experiences, for kids aged 3 to 18, that have come to define a classic American childhood. With 32 chapters ranging from "Loving and Caring for Others" to "Managing Your Money" and "Indoor and Backyard Fun," as well as vintage photographs and inspirational quotations, Growing Up is a beautifully designed family guide to be treasured by parents and kids alike. Two-color throughout, 36 photographs.
