Publisher's Synopsis

This book, written by a consultant paediatrician, offers unique perspectives on child development and parenting, and on Christian life and discipleship. In it, Dr Sidebotham interweaves his own professional observations and understanding of the processes of child development with a very personal engagement with his daughter as she grows, reflections on his role as a father, and on his own journey of faith.

Dr Sidebotham looks at a child's development from the point of view of the Shema prayer: love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. He uses that as a basis to explore what it might mean for Christian disciples to 'become like a little child.'

"The personal nature of the book is a winner. It is generous and inclusive. A lovely book."

--Elaine Storkey, President of Tear Fund

"A beautiful and worthy book. Readers will find this a delight to read."

--Scott Bessenecker. Associate Director of Missions, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship

"A beautiful account of a father's love for his daughter, weaving the spiritual, personal and professional into a testimony of God's abundant gift of life in all its fullness: moving and inspiring."

--Keith Sinclair, Bishop of Birkenhead
