We all want the best for our kids. But how do we protect their unique personhood while preparing them to live in a world that may not love them as we do? And also feed, clothe, and educate them properly?

In I Want This For You, mother and author Rumi Tsuchihashi invites you to taste the bittersweetness of raising a child and catch glimmers of what matters most in our tiny, shared moments.

This collection of thirty-three miniature essays portrays all kinds of everyday scenes: a visit to a donut shop that takes an unexpected turn, a conversation about how grown-ups know God is real, and a trip to Tokyo Disneyland gone awry. Some of her essays are written as intimate letters to her children. The title story takes you by the house the author lost in a divorce-and inside a conversation with her teenage son that she'll never forget.

Tsuchihashi has a knack for finding awe, wonder, beauty, and meaning in the ordinary-and our most persistent heartache. Through contemplation, meditation, humor, and literary style, I Want This For You will give you a moment of respite from the exhausting work of being a parent, and make you glad to be human.

If you enjoy memoirs by Anne Lamott, Glennon Doyle, and Maggie Smith, or books like After the Rain, The Book of Delights, and Tiny Beautiful Things, you'll love Rumi's I Want This For You.
