Overview

First-time fathers are often both excited and nervous. They're looking forward to delivery day--but they have to get there first. How does a new father know what to do, especially if he hasn't had a father figure of his own? Where can he go for reliable advice that won't overwhelm? From "A" (Agpar scores) to "Z" (zinc oxide to protect delicate skin), Paul and Pam Pettit provide an incredibly handy resource for the new dad-to-be. This brief book packs plenty of great information into its pages. Set up in an easy, alphabetized format, readers can dip in at any point, finding practical advice on every page. Why should you carry a diaper bag? Should you use a pacifier? Will you forget your own name because everyone calls you "Dad"? And what is pabulum? In between entries are thoughtful features by experienced fathers, including Chuck Swindoll and David Wheeler. They share their surprises and discoveries in the fatherhood journey, offering encouragement to those about to take their first steps on the path. Now updated with the latest statistics and current information after ten years in print, Congratulations, You're Gonna Be a Dad! is still a great resource or gift for an expectant father.

We hope you benefit from our book. It is a book of encouragement for first-time fathers. Many are buying it as a gift book for young couples who are expecting their first child. It is lighthearted, yet contains much useful information. We hope you like it. Paul and Pam Pettit
