Willie Mays said that good players can play with their bodies, but great players play with their hearts and minds as well. The same is true for fathering. In Covering Home, author Jack Petrash combines a love for children with his love for the game of baseball to give fathers, or fathers-to-be, a new perspective on raising children.

a book about fathering from a wise father and seasoned grade school teacher from a Waldorf curriculum perspective that is refreshingly balanced. Nice mix of memoir and advice that has a sports-theme that would appeal to many Dads. Pairs well with an introduction to mindfulness (or some other stillness practice, like centering prayer) -- these practices too are essential for keeping an even keel while parenting, and are under-emphasized in this book.
