Sergio Ruzzier brings his mischievous touch to a timeless favorite by Florence Parry Heide, beloved author of The Shrinking of Treehorn.

As the eight deliciously wicked tales featured in this hilarious chapter book prove, it’s perfectly nice to be a perfect child—but where’s the fun in that?

One woman's reappearance throws her family into turmoil, exposing dark secrets and the hidden, often devastating truth of family relationships.

Raising The Perfectly Imperfect Child

Raising The Perfectly Imperfect Child

Your guide to giving your child with special needs love, roots, & wings "You may lack limbs, but don't let that define what you can or can't do." That's the life-changing advice Boris Vujicic spoke to his son, Nick, who was born without arms or legs. With the help of his parents, Nick has become an internationally known inspirational speaker, a best-selling author, the founder of the nonprofit organization Life Without Limbs and, most importantly, a loving and responsible husband and father himself. But Nick's journey didn't start there. Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child is the inspiring, powerfully transparent story of how two unprepared and overwhelmed parents--Boris and Dushka Vujicic--overcame their grief, fears, and badly shaken faith to raise such an accomplished, faith-filled, and perfectly imperfect son. Through their stories, Boris offers practical advice and encouragement for all parents facing a "new normal" when raising a child with special needs or unique challenges. With tenderness, he addresses the spiritual, emotional, and financial challenges, and offers insights on how to equip a child for happiness and success in life. "I highly recommend Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child to anyone who has questions about bringing up a special-needs son or daughter." --Joni Eareckson Tada, founder and CEO of Joni and Friends International Disability Center "A profoundly moving, triumphant testimony to what it means to be an extraordinary parent." --Robin Berman, MD, author of Permission to Parent: How to Raise Your Child with Love and Limits
