Overview

They make pancakes on Sunday morning, and they make dinner, too. They teach the ins and outs of throwing a ball, and drive you to violin lessons. On Christmas they wear a Santa Claus suit, on birthdays their smiles are brighter than the candles on the cake. And when the moms of the world say "No!", they've been known to say yes. Dads are all this and more, and celebrating the very special relationship between fathers and children is Me and My Dad.

Edited and illustrated by Stuart Hample, co-editor of the million-copy-bestselling Children's Letters to God, here are dozens of touching testimonies about dads straight from their kids. Full of surprises and unexpected truth, flavored with a blend of love and laughter, fearlessly honest (what dad doesn't turn to putty in his child's hands?), it's a collection to warm any dad's heart:

"When he comes home late he comes into my room and stands there for a while looking at me. Sometimes I pretend I'm asleep. Then he pulls up the blanket and kisses me on my head." -Kevin

"Whenever you ask him a question he can go on and on until you could die. But there are many good things about him too." -Bruce

It's like Father's Day, all year long.

"Even if I'm bad my dad still has to like me because I am in his family. I think it's a law." (Alison)

"My dad does things like make the beds and clear the table but he never ever cleans the cat box! He says he comes from royal blood so he doesn't have to do little boxes." (Steven M.)

"Whenever you catch him that he broke a promise he always says in his dad voice, %I didn't break a promise, I changed my mind.í Yeah right." (Patricia)

I received this as a gift from my mother-in-law when my daughter was born. Since that day, almost 3 years ago, it has been daddy's comforting factor on many occasions after she has awaken in the middle of the night, crying. This book helps you remember all the good things of being a kid.

This book took me by surprise. It was a gift from my 7 year old. I find myself reading it over and over again because I see myself and my 2 boys in so many of the letters. It sits on my desk at work and it's been passed around and a couple of the other dads in the office now have a copy at their desk. It's such a joy to read by yourself or especially with your children.
