Dan has a unique way of describing the day to day wonders of raising a two year old that will keep you smiling, laughing, crying, and saying, "Yep! that's Right!"
Beware! There is a problem with reading Dan Alatorre's book - Savvy Stories Series: They are addicting. Few writers today have that keen gift for fining the humor in challenging situations and Dan has a secure place at the top of the heap for comedic writing. He knows how youngsters think, and better ye he knows how to appreciate their joyful outlook ...and wisdom.
For those who have enjoyed Dan’s other books (THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A QUICK TRIP TO BUYMART, SAVVY STORIES Volume 1, SANTA MAYBE?, POGGIBONSI, AN ANGEL ON MY SHOULDER, NIGHT OF THE COLONOSCOPY, etc) be aware that this is volume 2 of his Savvy Stories. Not that it makes a difference in the order in which you read them, it is juts that as we travel through Dan’s father experiences he just gets funnier – and wiser. The focus of this book as the title suggests is Savvy’s second year. But perhaps a chapter listing is a better guide: The Wonderful Two’s?, The Honesty Of A Two Year Old, Part 1: Child Proof Door Knob Covers, The Honesty Of A Two Year Old, Part 2: The Cat Feeding Disaster, The Honesty Of A Two Year Old, Part 3: The Sharpie Incident Chapter 5: The Honesty Of A Two Year Old, Part 4: Self Inflicted Haircut, The Honesty Of A Two Year Old, Part 5: The Spray Bottle Situation, Hospital Happy New Year, Holey Cannolis, Daddy’s (Sneaky) Little Girl, Almost Three – We All Made It!, Special Cakes, And They All lived Happily Ever After. That is a fairly solid tour guide, but the joy in reading Dan is the warmly hilariously yet tender manner in which he discusses the ‘nuances’ of fatherhood.
A little for example section sucks you in: ‘Swim Lessons - We signed Savvy up for swim classes. We have a pool, and even though it has a safety fence around it, we figured it was probably a good idea that she knows how to swim just in case. In Florida, there is a pond or a pool every twenty feet. It’s hard to estimate how well a little kid is doing at something when they are so young. At 18 months, they may lack the proper knowledge and coordination, and you don’t know if the information is really being understood. Then last night Savvy was teaching the dog’s chew-toy monkey how to swim across the carpet: Reach and pull! Reach and pull! I guess she’s getting it.’
You gotta love this guy! Read and guffaw and tear up a little if your kids are past this stage. Grady Harp, August 17

Starts out with summary of author's other works and reviews.
This book starts off where the first book ended. It's about Savvy and her life with her parents. The things they all learn are priceless.
Humor, child rearing, new adventures. Some tragic medical events and funny things along the way. Stay strong.
What I really like about these books are that as a grandparent of some adults and younger we get to do the fun things with them. Blowing bubbles, playing in puddles, making a sand castle, going down slides with them, playing army guys, dancing the hokey pokey and singing and dancing. Thanks for all the memories.
Excerpt from the next book in the series is included. Other summarized books are highlighted at the very end.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest review.
Although my children are grown and have long since left home, I was amazed at the similarity of experiences between life with our children and those that Alatorre recounts. I well remember my horror the day our daughter had a friend over and I thought they were happily and quietly playing in the bedroom, only to find that they had totally decorated a wall with crayon (similar to Savvy's artwork with the sharpie). Or the seemingly inexplicable refusal to eat various foods, which, to my mature taste, were positively delicious. Or thinking our scissors were well hidden, only to discover that our daughter had discovered them and was happily wreaking havoc. And, yes, we too had that experience of "losing" a child in Target and finding him hiding with a stuffed animal in the lingerie section, but only after half the staff started looking for him.
"The Terrible Two's" is in every way an often funny, sometimes poignant, and always realistic look at the life with a two-year-old child, which Dan Alatorre tells in a most compelling way.
I found this delightful book to be a wonderful tribute from the author, Mr. Alatorre, to his wife and to the miraculous birth of his daughter. You could feel his pride, and at times his fear, in every sentence. I say fear because I know, as a mother, that you are praying for every breath your child takes in those early days and months. Since little Savvy did have some problems it was apparent in Mr. Alatorre’s account just how much it affected their little family. I have since seen the pictures of his beautiful daughter on Facebook and can appreciate this book, and his tribute to Savvy’s Mom, and I can feel the genuine heartfelt words of his story echo through my heart. Mr. Alatorre, you have written an incredible account of your feelings during the process of your child’s birth and subsequent health problems and I am so happy that Savvy is well and is such a joy in your life. I would recommend this book to anyone who is having a child or even considering it.
