I’ve enjoyed reading So You’re Going to be a Dad by Peter Downey so I was excited when Hannah gave me a copy of Dads Toddlers and Chicken Dance by him.  I knew immediately that Downey would deliver with lots of laughs as well as providing some fantastic tips as I raise Daniel my 20 month old son.  I have not been disappointed.

One significant difference between Downey’s book and other authors is that his approach diminishes the anxiety that comes with being a dad of a toddler.  He lets you know that there’s a lot of other guys going through the same things, and they’re all doing just fine.  No fancy terminology – just creative terminology. No detailed psychological analysis from a group of doctors who pride themselves on using 10-syllable words – just the blunt facts from an everyday-Dad’s point of view.  An extremely humorous, yet insightful view into Dadism.

A perfect follow-up to Downey’s “So You’re Gonna Be A Dad”. I could only hope he continues his wizardry of words addressing prepubescent teenagers!
