Crouching Father, Hidden Toddler contains the treasured wisdom that will help new dads master the Buddha-like patience required to be on the receiving end of projectile pureed spinach, sleep-deprived moms, and toys with Some Assembly Required. Experienced dad and aspiring guru C.W. Nevius expounds on the ancient concept of wu wei (i.e., going with the flow) as well as some handy tips picked up from kung fu movies. An array of short essays ponder on such koans as What is the sound of one child napping? Also revealed are such proven parenting techniques as apprenticing with a learned senseithat is, the father of a child who doesn't bite. Whimsical illustrations and a winning compact format make this a perfect gift for Father's Day and co-ed baby showers. Warm and encouraging, Crouching Father, Hidden Toddler provides the one necessity for any samurai facing a Mt. Fuji of diapers: laughter.
