Item description for Why a Daughter Needs a Dad: A Hundred Reasons by Gregory E. Lang & Janet Lankford-Moran...
The relationship between father and daughter is one that almost defies description. Begun and nurtured in love, the relationship strengthens daughter and dad and brings out the best in both, softening the edges of fathers and providing strength and security for their daughters. The warmth of quietand exhuberanthugs and laughter, the comfort of familiarity, the creation of a history from which both dad and daughter may drawall this and much more express the rich relationship that exists between fathers and daughters.
Why a Daughter Needs a Dad is one father's loving reflection upon what he bringsor hopes to bringto his daughter's life. When I sat down to write, Gregory E. Lang observes, I wanted to express the essence of what I think is unique about the relationship my daughter and I share. He began to think of the things they had done together and how important their moments together have been. He thought of what sort of wisdom he could impart by virtue of a strong relationship, how their years together could provide a bond that would guide her as she grew into womanhood. The first time I read what I had written, he writes, I saw a list of what a daughter might ask her father to do for her. The second time I read it I saw a list of all that I hope to do for my daugher.
The result is a book that will inspire fathers to embrace the important role they hold in their daughters' lives, to provide them with the love, nurture, and support they seek, and to enjoy the blessings that are reciprocated in kind.

NGrad Dec 16, 2008
I wanted to remind my daughters that even though they were married, Dad still had a place in their lives. This book helped.
It's OK at best Nov 10, 2008
I read this one in less then an hour. It's basically a lot of fluff and no substance for parenting advice with your daughter. It's good enough for a coffee table book in my opinion, but not a resource by any means.
My Dad loved getting this book! Oct 26, 2008
I have rarely seen my Dad cry, but opening this birthday gift definitely brought a tear to his eye! To be needed is to be loved, and I guess getting this book let him know that he was loved!
On time and accurate Aug 23, 2007
My order arrived on time and the book was in pristine condition. This collection of books are great, meaningful gifts.
This is a beautiful book Jun 12, 2007
I bought this book for my husband in anticipation of our adopted daughter from China. For starters, I was thrilled that the photographs showed multicultural, multigenerational fathers and daughters including a photograph of a white father with an Asian daughter.
The sentiments inside are beautiful. If you're looking for a self-help book, this isn't it. If you're looking for short, single sentences of wisdom and encouragement accompanied by moving and beautiful photographs, this is your book.
I found this book in Target and must admit I was a little embarrassed by the tears streaming down my face when I read it. It reminded me of my own father, a true inspiration, and how my husband will be as a father once we bring our daughter home. This is a wonderful Father's Day, birthday, or Christmas present for any father from any daughter.
