thanks dadWith Father’s Day just around the corner, why not tell him you love him with 101 stories of gratitude, love and good times in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Dad.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

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!

OUR REVIEW

I really enjoyed reading this book because it gave me a whole different perspective . . . from a male’s point of view. There were other stories written by women about their fathers for me it was most interesting to see how men feel about being dads to their daughters . . . their hopes, fears, and dreams. I learned that even though they may not say “I love you” often to their kids, they show it in different ways. I learned that dads sometimes really know what’s best. And I learned that dads are truly everyday heroes.

Written in true Chicken Soup form, these stories are told in a short-story format which allows you to read as much or as little as your time allows. After all, we all know how busy life can be! So take a moment for yourself and check out Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Dad.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, annd without a doubt, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few
    men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across
    this in my hunt for something concerning this.
