Dads are not as highly regarded as moms as being a child's favorite parent, but Stanley G Buford sets the stage for change by providing an ode to dads throughout the world in Thanks, Dad! Fathers play several roles outside of being financial providers and disciplinarians. They are teachers in educating us about the ways of life, a mentor by being someone that we can learn from, as well as instrumental in helping us understand love and relationships that are essential to our well-being. Understandably, not everyone has had a father in the home but, hopefully, there has been a male figure around that has positively influenced the life of the child. This book honors and respects those fathers who continue to make a difference.
Every day I thank my dad for so many things and the blessings that he's instilled in my life even though he's deceased. I made sure not only to continually thank him but give him flowers while he was alive. I'm happy that Thanks, Dad! by Stanley G Buford, with beautiful illustrations by Rosemarie Gillen, was created because it encourages the reader not to take things for granted, but to reflect on the little things that dads do and the encouragement that they give to their children. It's the simple things that make a difference. By reading this book, your child will likely pause and think about how special their dad or that male figure is and will begin to appreciate the efforts and passion that these men are bringing into their lives in preparation for the future. Enjoy! Highly recommended.
