-- Gives children a tool for discovering who their fathers really are

This is a little book that asks big questions: some serious, some playful, some risky. Each is posed with the idea of opening, reopening, rejuvenating, or bringing closure to the primary but often overlooked relationship of Fathers and children. Each prompts reflection and/or discussion: of the father's relationship to the mother, what the father's relationship was like with his father, how the father began his career, how he felt and feels about his children, what his dreams were as a young man.

Questions for My Dad provides a blueprint for uncovering the full dimensions of the man who is also a father.

About the author (1998)

Vin Staniforth was born in England. While honeymooning in the United States, Vin was called home after his father became very ill. His father died two days after Vin's return, and Vin came to realize how much he still wanted to learn about--and from--his father. That realization was the inspiration for "Questions for My Father". Vin lives with his wife and two sons in Atlanta, Georgia.
