Overview

The Gubbins boys were a very normal pair of brothers in a very normal family. They woke up each morning, rushed through breakfast, rushed through dressing, and rushed to get on the school bus. At night before bedtime, Dad would have a special goodnight kiss and hug for them. And Dad would always tell his sons they were so special, and even smelled special! But Dad's affection sometimes seemed like an intrusion, slowing down the brothers' daily pace. So what happened when Dad's kisses stopped? In Bruce A. Healey's charming and educational book for young readers, the Gubbins boys came to understand that they had been rushing around and playing so hard, they hadn't been giving Dad any time or attention. When their mom encouraged them to think about that, and how much they loved their dad, what do you think they did? Complimented by delightful illustrations, this warm, amusing, and heartfelt story will resonate with young readers as well as their parents.

Meet the Author

Bruce A. Healey was born in Brazil and has also lived in England, Scotland, the Middle East, Venezuela, Mexico, and currently, in the United States. He graduated from Colgate University in 1984 with a B.A. in psychology and worked for many years in the insurance industry where he was the director of an insurance company in Sao Paulo, Brazil. When his wife was transferred to Venezuela in 1998, the author decided to become a "stay-at-home" dad and gained inspiration for writing books for young adults from his experiences with his two children growing up. He now lives with his family in Ohio where his hobbies include reading, boating, diving, and of course, writing. This is his first published book.
