What Good Are Dads, Anyway?

Long troubled by the diminishing importance society places on fathers, author Hayes addresses his concerns using pictures of five generations of kids, dads and granddads from his family photo albums. Whether taken by an old Kodak Brownie Hawkeye,or by a modern digital,all the pictures show the real value of Dad in a child's life. Accompanied by "quotes," as though the child in that photo were answering the title question, and made more thoughtful with quotes from a variety of sources, "What Good Are Dads, Anyway?" shows Dad just how important he is with humor and insight.
