101 Secrets A Good Dad Knows

    A wonderful gift for any dad

    What I love most about this book is that it's so full of the heartwarming lessons dads have always traditionally taught their kids. How to catch a frog, how to carve a whistle, how to shinny up a tree, how to fly a kite, how get a cricket to tell you the temperature, and even how to find the North Star and photograph lightning! This book allows any dad (or grandad or mom) to pass on the 'really important stuff' hidden in how to carve a ladder, how to skip a rock, or how to make a curve ball curve. What delightful fun! I bought this book for my husband, and my oldest son (a new dad) took it home with him, so I had to buy another copy.

From 'How to Build a Snow Candle' to 'How to Photograph Lightening' and 'How to Make a Curve Ball Curve,' this delightful book is sure to bring every father and his child closer. I bought it for my husband, and we both just love it!
