A Dad's Fun Guide to Raising Happy Daughters: Imagination Activities Against Body-Snatching Zombie Naysayers and Other Foes of Happiness by John Griffith is an entertaining book for dads, moms, aunts, uncles, grandparents, teachers, counselors, and many others who are raising children. This book has valuable techniques, advice, tools, and exercises to raise children in this new millennium. There will be many families who find it difficult raising children in a hostile and fast-paced world and this book provides them with concrete advice, useful strategies, and helpful tools to apply in difficult situations. The two voices in the book, that of an author and of a dad, are quite interesting to note and make the daughter-raising journey entertaining, informative, and valuable.

This book is a fun guide that speaks about the challenges faced by dads and what each dad should teach their daughters to make them strong individuals who can face the world confidently. The lessons are not the usual, conventional father/daughter lessons and the author's experience of raising three daughters mostly as a single dad also reveals a deeper connection and the strong bond he shares with his daughters. I like the author's approach to the topic; it highlights the values of trust and deep involvement while bringing up his daughters yet is written with fun, imagination, and humor. It is a good book for all parents to read because it will make communication and interactions with daughters better and help dads realize how easy it is to become a part of their daughters' lives.
