All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: The Essay that Became a Classic

Front Cover
Villard Books, 1988 - Humor - 40 pages
Most of what I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sandpile at Sunday School. These are the things I learned:
Share everything.
Play fair.
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Flush.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
