Papa’s Pearls ~ a TOS review

We added a new book to our home library a few weeks ago. Written as a tribute to the Flynn families beloved Papa, Papa’s Pearls: A Father’s Gift of Love and Wisdom To His Children and Grandchildren is filled with heartfelt wisdom and story telling of yesteryears.

Diane Flynn Keith recounts the stories of her childhood and that of her father, Papa Carol Joseph Flynn’s, wisdom. In this book there are 17 short chapters that tell how Papa lived through the depression era as a street kid and turned into a self-educated, made-man as a plumbing contractor.

The love and respect for Papa throughout the story is touchable. With a combination of heartfelt and humorous stories this book will leave you with a happy feeling. Papa sought to encourage and build his family and remind them that he loves them, always.

I, myself, read this story alone. Originally I had planned to use it as a read aloud for the girls. However, I plan to read it aloud to them in a few more years. I do plan on having Marie to read it over the course of the summer and look forward to to having heartfelt discussions with her.

I enjoyed reading this book and would gladly recommend it. I would suggest the parent read the book first as there are some topics that you may not want your child to read alone or without proper discussion. For $21.97 this book is a gem.
