In May, I shared a book I had written in about second or third grade (about 40 years or so ago) about my Mother. Today being Father’s Day, I wanted to share the book I wrote for my Dad. I don’t know how long it’s been since he’s seen this.
The book formula is the same as the book I wrote for my Mom. Each page starts with “A father is to”, and then the illustration and words relate to what I felt a father was supposed to do.
It is interesting looking at them side by side to see the differences in what I wrote about. The roles of Mom and Dad are very different in the eyes of my younger self.
As I did with my post in May, I’m going to present the book page by page. If you scroll over the picture, there will be my comments as an adult looking back on what I wrote.
Though distance separates us, my Dad is always close in my heart. Happy Father’s Day, Dad! I love you!
