From the Author

This is one of the most thoughtful gifts that you can give to a Dad, and he in return can give back to the entire family. Imagine if your great-grandfather had been able to tuck away a similar book for you and the rest of your family. What a joy to discover some of his favorite memories of the old days, in his own handwriting. This is such an inexpensive but thoughtful gift but, after the pages have been filled out, it will become a priceless and irreplaceable family heirloom.

I purchased this book as well as the "My Mom" coordinating book as Christmas gifts for our parents. I love the sentimental value of reading their story in their words...the only negative is that these books are TINY. I wasn't expecting them to be about the size of a large business card. This could be a good thing for our folks to not be intimidated to fill lengthy pages, however, I was expecting a larger book for the price.

My father doesn't write. No letters, no cards, barely even a chore list. So, when I saw this book I talked myself out of it many times. After a recent visit, when my father seemed interested in sharing stories of his past with his grandchildren, I decided to order the book. I was so surprised to find him pouring his memories into this book with a passion. He even turned off the ever blaring television. I am glad the book was small enough to not be intimidating. And I can't wait to read his stories over and over!!

I had purchased this book for my husband for Father's Day.
I did not realize that this was a small book - I thought i'd be a big book - so one can stick pictures etc. He hasnt used it yet, but I guess it was my mistake for not reading through the descriptions in detail.

While they were instrumental in shaping you into the unique person that you are, you rarely know a lot about your parents. This book will help you rectify this gap by asking precise questions that you either did not think of (or did not want to ask). Great gift as well!

I got this for my dad and father in-law. The questions are simple and they leave enough room to answer them. I hope to get others like this for other members of my family.

Very happy with this little book I purchase for my father. Family history is important to me, personal history of family members is important to me as well. Alzheimer's runs in my family, so I want to make sure I have personal stories to cherish. I'm gifting this to my father next week and am really looking forward to it. Definitely recommend!!

There was one question per page with several lines. It seemed to simple for my needs. I spent a few bucks more on the AARP journals, which I thought were more presentable and useful. However, if you prefer to keep it simple, then this book may be for you.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bought this for my father and husband's father for Christmas to keep track of all the stories and lessons they try to impart to us. They seemed to think it thoughtful, but not a cause for overjoy.
The only problem I see with it and why I only give this 3 stars?
It is short (as in, no more than 25-30 pages?), the questions are textbook, and the space given to fill in the story he writes is quite small. The book itself is also quite small. The pictures I saw of it were deceiving, leading me to believe it was of "normal" size. However, wrapping it took no more than a scrap of paper.

I would recommend this to those of us with parents who are sensitive and like to keep journals/diaries, as a place to write down those mountains of stories. However, I would advise caution as using it as a "main gift" as it rather a small book with not much substance.
I also bought the Grandma and Mom books as well, for my grandmother & mother and my husband's mother. They are exactly the same, with similar questions in all of the books (changing the he to she, and so on), same size, and same lack of pages/small entry space.
