Praise for All Aboard, New Children’s Book By Howard Schwartz

Praise for Howard Schwartz’s New Children’s Book, All Aboard:

“I found this book to be a delightful depiction of what life can be like for children, parents and grandparents who appreciate and enjoy each other. It’s written as a chapter book but I felt it was more a series of snapshots of the various challenges and rewards occurring in the lives of families circling around the curiosity and wishes of young children to explore and understand the world around them. Indeed, each snapshot stands on its own and yet is enhanced by the others.

It was particularly pleasurable for me to read this book in an era where each new book seems to be moving in a darker direction, intent on highlighting what’s wrong with the world. It’s great to be reminded that there is a wonderful side to life.” (more…)

From the Introduction:

How is this book different from other books that have been written about Sinatra?

Frank Sinatra was one of the most spectacular figures of the twentieth century. There are more books and articles written about him that would attest to his popularity. He could be seen as one of the greatest entertainer, performer and singer that has ever lived. I do not intend to follow the story of his life but rather address some issues or strategies that brought him to the top. (more…)
