The beloved novelist shines his wit and wisdom onto the joys and problems of fatherhood.
Clyde has four kids ranging in age from 6 to 31 years old. After three decades of fatherhood, there are certain things he has learned during his tenure. His way of raising his children involves, of course, lots of humor (don't curse near a mimicking child), but also the sound advice of a lifelong educator (you can't start reading to a baby too early).
With PAPADADDY'S BOOK FOR NEW FATHERS, a great storyteller gives wise counsel to new parents--both fathers and mothers, young and old alike. Writing from experience, observation, and his vivid imagination, Clyde conveys both caution and joy--mostly joy.
