Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very Inspiring  May 16, 2006
How wonderful for someone to write a book on a topic we would all like to do but may not know how to start or ideas to get it done. This is a very inspiring and wonderful book on the importance of leaving a wonderful legacy to our families. It is fun and impotant. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
Collection of stories and ideas to pass on a legacy  Apr 4, 2006
How do families give their children a sense of belonging in a world where families change residences, neighborhoods, and towns every few years? Florence Littauer and her daughters, Marita Littauer and Lauren Littauer Briggs, offer solutions in building a family legacy to pass onto the generations that follow in Making the Blue Plate Special.

The three authors and several guest writers suggest ways to use keepsakes, decorations, collections, food, and family and holiday traditions to pass on the legacy. They include information on recognizing your family heritage, using trips to further it, and the importance of letters. They give practical tips on searching for untold stories, tracing, recording, and preserving memories. They also deal with more unusual situations, such as authenticating and preserving an adopted child's cultural legacy, making your legacy into part of your adopted child's heritage, and passing on a legacy if you are childless.

Written in a warm, conversational style, Making the Blue Plate Special is enjoyable reading. Using stories from their childhoods, the authors, especially Florence, draw the reader into an intimate visit which inspires the reader to look into her own past. The Littauer ladies include an appendix on writing heritage or legacy letters. Though the book includes male contributors, more women than men will find the book interesting.

Florence Littauer is a prominent speaker and writer on biblical teaching, relationship issues, and life skills. Her daughter, Marita, has written thirteen books and is the administrator of CLASServices, Inc., which trains speakers and writers for ministry. Daughter Lauren Littauer Briggs is an author and co-founder of Compassionate Friends, a support group for parents whose children have died. - Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book
An Insider's Look at "Making the Blue Plate Special"  Feb 8, 2006
I have a bit of an insider's look at this book having been a pre-publication reader and contributor on this project. However, when I was able to see the finished product it was more than I expected. In traditional Littauer Flair, Florence, Marita and Lauren combine poignant stories with true-to-life vignettes to create take home value for the everyday reader. There is no way that you can read this book and not get an idea for a new "family tradition" for your own family. This is an ideal gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparent's Day and EVERY day! "What will they say about you?" when you give this gift? That you have excellent taste and value the longevity of your life and legacy.
