Synopsis

“A dad is always there to provide support and encouragement just when it’s needed most, as well as help teach us some of life’s most invaluable lessons — from how to fly a kite and pitch a tent to how to change a tire, negotiate a raise, or take on our first big home improvement project. Now it’s time to say thank you!”

From Al Roker and friends, a new book in celebration of Dad, just in time for Father’s Day!

Bestselling author and beloved Today show personality Al Roker teams up with his celebrity friends to share personal thoughts, stories, and reflections on fathers and fatherhood in this heartwarming collection.
