In Celebration of Dads and Fatherhood
Other Editions of This Title:
Bestselling author and beloved Today show personality Al Roker teams up with his celebrity friends to share personal thoughts, stories, and reflections on fathers and fatherhood in this heartwarming collection.
A dad is always there to provide support and encouragement just when it's needed most, as well as help teach us some of life's most invaluable lessons--from how to fly a kite and pitch a tent to how to change a tire, negotiate a raise, or take on our first big home improvement project. Now it's time to say thank you!
In Big Shoes, Al Roker and 45 other well-known personalities share personal stories about how their fathers have been there for them during times of both adversity and triumph, and the countless large and small ways they've shaped their lives throughout the years. These essays remind us of the important--and lasting--legacy of our dads, even as we've grown up and gone on to start families of our own.
A stellar group of contributors reflects on the importance of fathers and fatherhood, including:
- Matt Lauer
- Katie Couric

- Kris Kristofferson
