A great book for a great dad

“IF something is worth doing, do it right the first time.”, “You won’t catch anything if your line’s not in the water.”, “Don’t be so serious about everything.”, “Save for the future, it will come along soon enough.”.

These are just some of the words of wisdom contained in the heart warming, 30 Things My Dad Taught Me.

Throughout their lives, authors Ian, Paul and Denis Baker learnt many things from their extraordinary dad and 30 Things is a result of their promise to turn his wisdom into a book for countless families to enjoy.

30 Things is full of quotes, personal stories and pages for you, your own father and your son or daughter to add their own “30 things”. It is a truly unique and special book inspiring you to search your mind and recall the lessons you’ve learnt from your dad and appreciate that dads are also one of the greatest mentors, friends and guides.

30 Things is the perfect gift for Father’s Day - “It’s like a big card that you buy, read the nice printed words in it, and then add your own words before giving it to your dad.” say the brothers.

Full of timeless pearls of wisdom that have been passed through the generations from fathers to sons, 30 Things will make a beautiful, personal gift that every dad will treasure and share with his family forever.
