Dad is Fat
Lately, I've found myself in need of lighter reading material. Several people who saw me reading the book asked my thoughts on it: BUY IT! This man is hilarious + clean.
I have been bugging my dad for a few years to write me a book of wisdom, and although Jim Gaffigan is writing to his young children, I am sure they will appreciate it later in life.
Jim shares the struggles of raising five children in NYC. Everyday's an adventure and he shares with the reader his successes (like getting the kids to bed each night in a two bedroom apartment) and struggles (taking his family out in NYC).
His advice for parents is valuable (not being a parent yet, I would THINK this is valuable advice). He talks about fun things to do with kids in the city, the hassle of putting sunscreen on his extremely pale offspring, and the challenge of having small kids while trying to attend a church service.
Great gift idea for Father's Day or a new dad. I even appreciated it as a 20-something single female.
Thanks for the laughs, Jim.
I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
