From Amazon: Jim Duncan knew the value of fathers. Fathers are valuable. Fathers are good. Fathers always do what they know they should. Fathers know the best road to take. They know what is right. They won’t make a mistake. That’s why when a problem came up Jim Duncan called on his father to help clean things up. “I live in a house with five noisy small kids and a wife who can’t find the pots and their lids. The place is a mess, a disaster,” said Jim said. “I can’t even find a chair or a bed. We’re crammed and jammed. It’s all quite a ruckus. Can you help me out of this ruckus that’s among us?” This is the beginning of a tale that Jim’s father takes him on to lead him to a very important discovery. It’s fun, full of whimsy, and certainly a story any child will adore. It is also amusingly illustrated with 25 happy and colorful images by Sally Huss. Those who love the rhyming delights of Dr. Seuss and the books of Sandra Boynton, the Berenstains, Felicia Bond, Laura Numeroff and P.D. Eastman will love A WISE AND THOUGHTFUL FATHER.
My Review: All in one’s attitude. Great story for kids. Using animals to teach kids and adults with kids, learning that one’s attitude can make a huge difference. Five stars.
