Childhood is an important stage in every person’s life. According to research posted in the UNICEF website, brain development is rapid during childhood and when the quality of stimulation, support and nurturance is deficient, the child’s development is seriously affected. Unfortunately, not all children get to experience a healthy and holistic childhood. In his new book, “Post-Hole Digger” (published by Xlibris), James Pope tells the true story of a boy who experiences the harsh realities of life at a very young age.

“Post-Hole Digger” follows a young Iowa farm boy and how he was called upon to fulfill responsibilities for things years beyond his age when his father unexpectedly passes away. His life and story reflect a reality taking place around the world. It is a story of children who do not get to enjoy the luxury of playful, stimulating activities and the joys of childhood as they must carry the burden of looking after their family.

Harrowing, poignant and eye-opening, “Post-Hole Digger” is a boy’s remarkable coming-of-age and it is a testament to the indomitable human spirit.
