Thoughtful and Moving
I laughed, I cried, and I considered my own family and relationships. After reading this I will certainly try to be a better mother, sister, and daughter.
This book is about not only the admirable qualities of her father and his dedicated support of her, but also her intense devotion to him and her worthy family.
This book is a good description of an interesting and rewarding life and how it was achieved.
I am honored to have done the illustrations for the book
Nice gift to all the parents!
Your stories with your father also recalled a lot of my memories with my father. He also did something like your father did.
This quick read will warm your heart. Madison has a knack for bringing words to life and will make you feel as though you are right there in the moment. This is a beautiful celebration of life...the ups and downs and in between. Happy Father’s Day is a love story between parent and child and will bring a smile to your face as well as a couple of tears. Well worth the read!
A great gift to all fathers
It is touching and fun to read. I am able to put myself into the story and feel the love of the author father. Myself a father or two kids, this book taught me how to taught what is the value of the world , LOVE and not money
A window into the relationship between a daughter and her father
This book is a collection of sweet and touching stories about a daughter and her father. The picture painted of the author's father and family life growing up is so warm and an inspiration for my own family life. I love the scene with the whole family crammed around the one table in the house. You can feel the love that was shared by all. At the end of this read you will feel that you intimately know the author.
A book that speaks to the preciousness of time with our loved ones
I ordered this book on the suggestion of a friend and I am so happy I did. Once I started reading, I could not put it down. Each chapter is artfully crafted, capturing poignant moments in a rich life that the author shared with her father.
"Happy Father's Day" brought me back to the formative moments that I shared with my own dad and reminded me of the precious relationship a daughter can have with her father. You know you're reading a great book when you chuckle and cry at the same time.
Walking us through life with her dad, and the loss of her dad, the author provided an intimate perspective into what it feels like to lose someone so close to you and so integral to your life. I have yet to experience this personally, but I can imagine that when I do, reading a book such as this would provide a little solace and feel something like a warm embrace.
I highly recommend this book for yourself or as a gift to be reminded of the preciousness of life.
