Just Dads: Nerves of Steel, Wills of Iron, Hearts of Pudding
Bonnie Louise Kuchler
Willow Creek Press, 2002 - Family & Relationships - 112 pages
While mothers' devotion might get more attention, many fathers also do their fair share of raising young. Just Dads is a unique gift book that combines engaging and interesting male animal parenting photographs with insightful fatherhood quotations. Along with the quotations are intriguing facts about the paternal care many species provide, including the emperor penguin father who carries the egg on his feet for three months without eating, the male stickleback fish that opens his mouth when danger threatens so the youngsters can dash in to safety, and the male titis monkeys that babysit the young in the forest canopy, freeing up the females to travel ahead and eat their fill. The delightful images combined with the insightful quotations bring an engaging new perspective to the role of fatherhood, both animal and humankind.
