Portable Father: Advice, Encouragement, and Friendly Reminders from Dad

Portable Father: Advice, Encouragement, and Friendly Reminders from Dad

by Turner Publishing Company


For most of us, Dad always seemed to be the biggest and most wonderful person we knew. In spite of all that Mom did for us, Dad loomed almost larger than life: strong, fun-loving, the most handsomest man in the world, and - most important - the man who protected and loved us. It seemed that Dad was full of advice. He sure had plenty of it to go around. Some of it was to the point and made a great deal of sense, says Stacey Granger. Some of it made little sense at all to my brother, sister, and me, like when he said, 'The more things change, the more they stay the same. But when he said, 'There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who sit around wondering what happened, ' we knew he was telling us which kind of person he wanted us to become. The Portable Father is a delightful collection of about 300 bits of wisdom, fun, and advice that fathers pass along to their children. Illustrated with 26 cartoons, The Portable Father is filled with sayings we have heard our own fathers speak or - now that we are adults - we've caught ourselves saying to our own children
