Makes a great gift! Sep 21, 2005
We bought this book for my dad for Father's Day this year, and thought he would have fun reading it since he has four granddaughters. He loved it and has even selected stories to read to the girls during over-nights with Grandpa and Grandma. I highly recommend it as a great gift.
