My Dad Weighs 70 lbs. and is 60 ft. Tall!

About six years ago I started feeling bad for dads who don't often get classoom-made Father's Day gifts since school is out by then in our neck of the woods.  Thus this book was born.  Each child fills out a questionnaire, I type up their answers, I take pics of them wearing a tie, I copy it all several times over, and every father gets their own copy of the book. I wish I could include the answers from every son and daughter because they're all pretty cute and funny too.  I hope you find yourself chuckling as you read these few though.

    1. Kelly, thank you! It's one of those projects that's hard to skip now that I've done it for several years. The kids' comments crack me up.

    1. Barbara, yep that's a funny one. I think at least one kid says that every year. I see a pattern here. :)

  11. As a father, thank you so much for not forgetting about Father's Day! Perhaps some year, Hallmark will allow us to swap Mother's and Father's Day, but until then it is nice to see a teacher remember that fathers treasure their student's projects as well.
