This book was ok. The book goes through and shows examples of "daddies" performing many different job duties and fulfilling the typical "white, 1950's husband" role. I realize that this book was written in a different time, but I don't think it is the best example of what fathers can do in the present era. There were no pictures of any minorities, and no women were shown working. This might be a good history lesson, but it is not current with the times.
