a little book of parenting skills,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 101 Secrets a Good Dad Knows (Hardcover)
There is a sweet (but short) time when kids think their parents know everything; with this little book you will be able to put off that bittersweet (but necessary) time when they know better.
Some items seem obvious (how to throw a frisbee or climb a ladder). Some I used to know but couldn't remember specifics (how to determine the temperature by a cricket's chirps, tell time by the stars, or break in a baseball glove). Others were totally new to me (how to photograph lightning or build a snow candle). Descriptions are two to three pages. When necessary, line illustrations are used.
I'm puzzled as to why several people felt the need not only to give this book a one-star rating, but then to belittle people who live in cities or don't know everything (as they seem to). Maybe you won't enjoy this book as much as others, but giving it such a low rating and indulging in tirade is a bit hostile -- and undeserved. Maybe all 101 things won't be new to you but likely some, and perhaps more, will.

What a charming review. They way you admonished the "doubters" without using their own caustic tone just made me smile. I guess you must be a nice person!
