Dads have a special way of relating to children. They tend to rough-house and tease children more than moms do. It is usually a father who teaches a child how to shoot a free throw, catch a frog, or fix a broken bicycle chain. Knowing how to do these things raises a child's self-esteem, increases self-confidence, and fosters self-reliance because they expand a child's ability to cope with and understand the world.

Each of the 101 secrets in this wonderful gift book is explained in short descriptions accompanied by a drawing and a fact or tip. Many of these skills involve a simple secret to do them successfully. Knowing these secrets will enable any dad to look like a hero to his children.

Included are instructions for...

  • How to fly a kite
  • How to find the north star
  • How to skip a rock
  • How to make a paper airplane
  • How to tie a necktie
  • How to change a spark plug
  • How to carve a whistle
  • How to bait a hook
  • How to pitch a tent
  • How to identify five icky things under a rock
  • Which properties to buy in Monopoly

"The perfect gift for any father, grandfather, or mother who wants to teach children skills that will increase self confidence, raise self-esteem, and foster self-reliance." - Nashville Lifestyles
