This book gives fathers the pat on the back they deserve. Children of all ages share their heartfelt words of thanks and loving memories in this collection of 101 stories. Personal accounts of learning from Dad's example and lasting lessons, special moments and memorable outings, encouragement and expectations will bring any father joy, inspiration, and laughs. Whether the reader is a new dad, a father of teens, a father of grown children, or a grandfather, these heartwarming and humorous stories will resonate with him. He may even find that his kids did pay attention after all!
In my personal opinion I have not read a Chicken Soup for the Soul book that I didn't like. The titles "Chicken Soup for the Soul" really does it's content justice and this one is not different!
My most favorite story in this book can be found on page 163 and is titled, Dad's Secret Ritual. I love this story because it reminds me of my own dad. Though my dad's time on his knees was first thing in the morning before he left for work, he would kneel down at the couch in the living room and I would step over his bent legs on my way out the door to school as a teenager.
I remember him whispering our each of our names, my brother, my sister and mine and I remember him with his handkerchief waded between the palms of hi hand, his fingers tightly intertwined, his head resting on his wrists.
I love that the Chicken Soup for the Soul include stories of faith and hope and love and inspiration. I love that they are short, light-hearted and thought-provoking.
My dad will receive a copy for Father's Day this weekend, with a bookmark marking my favorite story in the book.
