Book Description

(Regular price $5.99) Perfect for Father's Day, this hilarious and heartwarming story of a new dad learning what it means to be a father will have you falling in love with your children all over again.

Bestselling author and humorist Dan Alatorre brings us into his living room for funny and delightful stories about the real meaning of fatherhood and parenting. "Savvy" is the nickname of his newborn daughter, and "Savvy Stories" is a fun filled romp through the early years of having a baby. These stories will have you laughing out loud as she takes over the house - and their hearts! Equal parts funny and touching, Savvy Stories shows you why all kids are special. After all, "the beauty of children is in the magic they see everywhere; the beauty of parenthood is seeing it with them." Not a bumbling TV sitcom stooge, the dad in this book is a smart, kind, loving man who is constantly amazed at his daughter, something every dad should be.

You will laugh and cry, sometimes on the same page, and you will see yourself 100 times over in this book. Savvy Stories has been acclaimed as required reading for parents, for its hilarious and heartwarming insights. Its lessons are deep and apply to every family, everywhere, because what makes Savvy special is what makes all children special. We just have to look.

More About the Author

Dan Alatorre was born in Hamilton, Ohio, and (after a frustrating year or so of pretending to be an engineering technology student at the University of Dayton) transferred to the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business. A few years later, after taking a sample Mensa test in Playboy magazine, he sat for a supervised Mensa exam, passed, and became a member of Mensa. Thusly inspired, he went on to earn an MBA from Tampa College.

Dan was just a normal guy doing normal things until he and his wife were blessed with a baby when he was about 47 years old. Some will argue he was never a normal guy, but nobody will argue that the addition of a bouncing baby girl changed his life. Savannah and her Mommy, her Daddy, her dog Buddy and her cat Kitty all live together in Lutz, Florida, next door to Tampa.

My writing is done in a simple, plain spoken approach, and I try to put the reader right in the room with me.

What people have found interesting about my stuff - at least what they've told me - is that it's interesting to hear all this from the dad's point of view, and not as a bumbling TV sitcom dad, but as a real, thoughtful, functioning human being. My wife had to stop reading my stories because she would cry (in a good way, I think) and her friends who would read it would cry...

It became my goal to have everyone I know cry first thing every morning. Or laugh; I could go either way.

There is a lot of fun stuff in this book and I think you will be touched by it. You'll re-live memories and remember things that you never thought that you knew. I tell folks that my kid isn't any funnier or more unique than anybody else's kid; ALL kids do these things. I just wrote them down. And you'll know what I mean by the end of chapter 3.

Life is forever changed when Dan and his wife welcome Savannah, their daughter. From the rough days right after childbirth to the first year of Savvy's life, Dan shares it all. These new parents meet reality vs the baby books. Lessons will be learned the hard way- by trial and error. Milestones and surprises make the first year a busy one. This book will give you a look into one set of parents' way of dealing with things.

I did enjoy this book. It took me back to when my three were newborns. It's a heartwarming book and parents will enjoy seeing that someone else dealt with these issues too. We weren't alone. Funny and scary in equal parts, I felt like I could shout," I agree with you." in so many areas. One thing that comes through easily is the love The Alatorre's have for their daughter. Some of the stories will bring laughter and others will bring tears. Oh the changes a new baby brings.

I did find some issues. It's repetitive in places. It rambles at times, but that is how we are as parents. Much could be removed and there wouldn't be any affect to the story at all. In places it's more like a memoir of Dad more than funny things learned from his daughter. I'm sure there were many more things Dan could have shared in place of these things.

I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because of the issues noted above. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

Fans of Dan Alatorre have come to expect a level of humor that is consistant and hilarious. Just add heartwarming and nostalgic to the mix and you have the recipe for his latest work, Savy Stories.

Told from the point of view of a new 'older' father, we get the blow-by-blow of his daughter Savvy's early years starting with the delivery room to the mistakes, the breakthoughs and the smells. Most of all, the tinist of precious moments that a parent wishes they could preserve forever and shout to the world. (I know you have been there too.)

The author takes this time to create a tale of never forgotten memories and finally gets to shout it to the world. Prepare for some tearful moments that will tug at you as a familiar scene takes you back to your own precious moments.

From start to finish we get to look through the eyes of the father, with a very funny talent for making you smile and laugh quite a lot.

This book was a excellent read, it is funny and entertaining. This book is from a fathers point of view about his first baby daughter and all the events from start to present. There are so many childhood memories Dan talks about which made me think about my own childhood. It is well written and is realistic. I highly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars This book will make you think 20 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
This book will make you realize that even if you want to sell your kids something they are the best thing that could have happened to you. This book will make you think about all the little moments between yourself and your kids and how loving them is not the hardest task at hand.
