Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This neat little handbook of advice is 314 pages of wisdom to help guide a father through the various stages of his son's life. Divided into sections titled The Five Keys, Little Boys, Boys and Sports, Boys and Spirituality, Boys and Money, Boys and Girls, and Older Boys. There is no issue in life that is not touched upon. Although the Boys and Girls section is rather abbreviated, other sections are well rounded in their emphasis on universal values. Perfect for the new Dad. 2003, Workman Publishing, Ages adult parent.

Read an Excerpt


From Little Boys...

Teach him to keep a secret.

Take him for walks and introduce him to the world of bugs.

Read to him nightly. He'll love it.

Don't let him sleep in you bed, even if he's scared or sick. Sleep in his room on the floor.

From Boys & Sports...

Show him how to put a baseball in a new glove and wrap a belt around it.

Accept the fact he may not be a quarterback, he may be a tuba player. And a fine one at that.

From Boys & Money

Help him buy a small amount of stock with his own money when he's twelve. Think how rich he'll be if he keeps that up for fifty years.

Show him how to return something to the store and get his money back.
