Reviews - What do customers think about Reading With Dad?

I beg to differ with you all - this is a very sad book.  May 2, 2008
My daughter received this book for her seventh birthday today and as her father I was very excited to read it at bedtime. As I read it aloud, and we moved through the phases of a lifetime, I realized that the book was headed towards old age and...death. By the end, my daughter was crying and very upset. She does not upset easily, and we read hundreds of books a year, and this is the first time this has happened. I do not believe this book is appropriate for 4 - 8 year-olds, and I urge you to read it completely before sharing it with your child.
A Perfect Gift!  Oct 12, 2006
At first glance, one would think that Reading With Dad is a children's book. It is, sort of... It's also a book for all the grown-up children who fondly remember a childhood of reading with Dad. My father has been gone for almost six years now and Reading With Dad reminded me of the happy memories of bedtime stories with Dad.

Reading With Dad follows the parent/child reading relationship from youth to adulthood. It is a celebration of reading and of the loving relationship between children and their parents. The illustrations are a visual history of the cycle of life and are compelling.

Armchair Interviews says: The perfect gift with a message that encourages us all to share stories with our loved ones. You'll smile and you might experience a tear or two.

how i feel about this book  Jul 24, 2001
I think this book deserves more attention then it got. This book rocks!
A Fantastic Gift for a Grown Daughter to Give Her Father!  May 27, 2001
With Father's Day coming up, what can a grown daughter with a family of her own give as a present to a father who always read to her? This book makes an ideal choice. Any father would be thrilled to receive it, along with a photograph of father and daughter reading together. If you don't have such a photograph now, why not pose for one?

"We're there in the photo that hangs on the wall,/

the first childhood memory I can recall . . ."

The poetry develops around a mutual love of reading, and the closeness that it has brought.

The illustrations by Warren Hanson add a timeless, but time-tinged, romantic feeling to these moments of closeness that will tug at your heart.

And what do you think they are reading in the first photograph? Why, The Cat in the Hat! Think of that!

"That photograph shows the best times that I've had:/

all those times I spent reading with Dad."

As the story develops and time passes, the roles change. At eight, her father listens to her reading to her dolly, hamster and stuffed bear. In college, they would discuss authors over the telephone that she was reading. After she is a mother, she owns the old reading chair, and he watches her read The Cat in the Hat to her two little girls. As he ages, she reads to him while he is in bed.

As she thinks about all of these experiences, she remembers that "there was always a book before saying good-night."

"The best of the times that I've ever had/

are all of those times I've spend reading with Dad."

The illustrations are filled with closeness, Dad and daugher hugging or sitting close to one another. They make you feel a warmth in your chest that makes you yearn to have such moments with a father or a daughter.

But if you are like me, you will find that the best part is the idea of how to use reading as a connection throughout life.

What a wonderful way to reinforce a heritage of reading! I suggest that you think about how you can build on all of those wonderful stories you read together years ago. One way that I did it was to ask my daughter which books we had read together she liked best. Then I wrote a review of each one, and posted it on-line giving her full credit for the selection. In many cases, I also described her reactions to the stories. In this way, she can read a journal of our experiences together with those books. And the journal can be shared with her children someday. You can do the same . . . or even better, pick something that will mean even more in your family!

Connect with all you love and care about through books and reading!
