Report by (Your Name Here)
Uh-Oh was written by Robert Fulghum, it is 244 pages long and was published by Villard Books.
This book is a collection of small stories pertaining to the life of the author, and also his opinions, thoughts, and philosophies. There are no specific characters that are through the book except the author. This is not a novel, but yet it does continue some of the ideas written in his previous books, All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten and It Was On Fire When I Lay Down On It. Some people may ponder the author’s decision on the title, but it is explained quite thoroughly in the book. At any time you may pick up this book and read a section of it without having to read it from the start, and yet every story and idea in the book flows right into the next. The sheer simplicity and ease of reading is a pro, but still it is very detailed in every way. Here’s one thing though: if you didn’t like the style of writing in his previous books, chances are not much will change your opinion on this book from your opinion on the last. The style of writing is very laid back, sort of a Sunday reader or one that you can pick up in the bathroom from time to time.
I enjoyed reading this book so much the first time I had to read it again. The second time was even better than the first, because of all the new things I could understand. I love how nowhere on his book does it say “New York Times Bestseller” because every other book on the shelf has it, but the author chooses to be different. He knows he’s a winner, and as long as the people know that, he doesn’t have to show it off. I also love that when I finish reading one of his books it’s like I’ve just been sitting right next to him for about 4 hours and had a big conversation. But that’s not all of what his book is. He’s a minister, so in his writings you can see traces of church lecture here and there, and there’s also an element of the book that everyone can relate to, you know, read something in the book that sparks an old memory, and say, “Gee, I can remember when....” If there is any author that is more inspiring, uplifting, or downright hilarious than Robert Fulghum, I’d like to meet that person and kiss their feet.

Yet when Mrs. Rubin made the announcement about the new club she was starting at the junior high school, it triggered something in my mind. Two weeks later, during the last month of my eighth grade year, I figured it out.

EducationEducation I am supposed to find out the purpose of my education if there is one at all, I really am not sure if my education so far has had a purpose maybe by the end the purpose will come out. So I will tell everything I remember about the schools I went to I hope if finding out the purpose.

Understand Who The Homeless Are The First--and most important--thing you can do to help the homeless is to realize that the tired old stereotypes concerning them just are not true. Myth: They want to be homeless. Fact: Less than six percent of the homeless are that way by choice. Myth: They're to blame for being homeless. Fact: Most homeless are victims. Some have suffered from child abuse or violence. Nearly one quarter are children. Many have lost their jobs. All have lost their homes. Myt

I’ve learned one thing from being dragged across the country though, and that is wherever you go, there is always something to learn from the situation and the place that you lived in, when you loo

The first memory of elementary school is usually not a person, what a teacher is like, or the lessons that were learned each day. Most memories are probably of recess and the playground: cooite chases, kickball, tag and the good ole monkey bars. Unfortunately, for today's generation of students, the likelihood of not having recess is becoming more and more prominent in public schools. In A 1989 survey of state superintendents cond
GROWTH: ALL ASPECTS GROWTH: ALL ASPECTS Wanda Smith When I sat down to write a reflection paper about myself I came to the realization that I was raised with good moral standings. My mother was a registered nurse and my father was in the United States Navy for 22 years. They worked hard and did the best they could with us. From a young age, my four siblings and I were taught that there were always many tasks that needed to be done, and in a timely manner. Having good morals is very important to me because I know
Genetics vursus NurtureGenetics vursus Nurture Bad Parents Make for Bad Children Genetics is not the only valid excuse for a childâ€™s misbehaviour. Society prides itself in the way a child is raised by parents. Children misbehave because something vital is missing in oneâ€™s nurturing. These mothers and fathers allow young children to stray from moral equity, challenge authority and use violence as a resolution for anger. Nurturing should include deterrence from wickedness and inducement of morality all the while con
