A REVIEW BY A RETIRED NEBRASKA AND ARIZONA SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Jan 24, 2007
I have just finished reading the book "A Father's Stories for His Children: A Christian Reader for Students Grades 5-9" by Dr. Bob Shanks, and found it to be a great book containing lessons in faith, building of confidence and, just plain good stories for young people.
While these stories for children are the goal of this intriguing book, I believe everyone of all ages should take the time to read it.
For me, it brought back memories and reminded me that the lessons taught in the Bible are synonymous with living a successful everyday life; Accolades to "Dr. Bob" for his delightful book.
You will be inspired to the fullest.

Heartfelt and Personal Lessons Nov 4, 2006
Dr. Shanks's slim book is dedicated to "students grades 5-9." However, his heartfelt personal vignettes and biblically-related lessons could be appreciated and enjoyed by adults as well. There may be a story for almost everyone in this book.
From the Christian Heart Oct 25, 2006
This book has touched the lives of two of my children...This author has unselfishly poured his Faith in God into his stories. A must read for all Parents struggling to bring God into their childrens lives in these challenging times.
A Great Inspiration for parents and grandparents too Oct 3, 2006
Lots of crisp, short stories for Christian kids and their parents and grandparents to read to each other to reinforce values. Use it as a devotional before family dinners. Bob's grandmother reminded me a lot of my own with her wisdom and practical approach to life's big questions.
