Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Wisdom of Dads is a special way to pay tribute to Dad, and also a great read for all fathers and children. Stories remind readers of the special bond between fathers and children and the unique reverence children hold for their wise old dads.

Children view their fathers with awe from the day they are born. Fathers are big and strong and seem to know everything, except when their kids are teenagers -- then they know nothing. This book contains 101 great stories selected from Chicken Soup for the Soul’s library, all focusing on the wisdom of fathers. These heartwarming and often humorous stories are written by sons and daughters about their fathers, and by fathers about their children.
