Book: ‘Daddy! …Can You Hear Me???’ – by Patrice Lee

Daddy can you hear

*Detroit MI – In every age group, from every nation, both male and female, from all walks of life, both great and small, there is an outcry for children to be connected with their dads. Children need their fathers.

Chief Anti-Bully Advocate and author, Patrice Lee, has released another great literary resource – a powerful book of loving poems titled, Daddy! …Can You Hear Me??? (Leep4Joy Books; 96 pages)

This powerful book is changing the lives of children across the nation and around the globe as it touches the heart of absentee dads, and even prompts those who can step in as substitute dads. It is a collection of healing messages and anecdotes in poetic verse for fathers, sons and daughters.

Lee, the mother of a son and daughter, has worked with youth in both public and private school settings; with middle-class and at-risk youth and has observed, as statistics have shown, that the greatest percentage of juvenile delinquents are growing up in fatherless homes. She believes that a dads’ involvement is key to reversing the stats. Lee’s poems encourage continual interaction between fathers and their children, while motivating non-engaged (or absentee) dads to take that initial step to become involved.

In the book’s Foreword, National PTA President, Otha Thornton, writes: “Patrice Lee gently nudges dads to get involved, and reconnect or stay connected with their children, as she presents real-life scenarios through conversational poetry in a non-threatening way.”

Reverend Dr. Jim Holley, Pastor of Detroit’s Historic Little Rock Baptist Church says, “The messages of faith, hope, healing and love have a powerful effect in Daddy! …Can You Hear Me??? Of all the Leep4Joy Books and Resources’ self-help materials, perhaps this is the one that will have the greatest impact upon the families, to help save our children and youth. So let the healing begin!”

Using the anti-bully platform to speak to children, parents, and teens via workshops, classroom and anti-bully assemblies, Lee remains committed to her mantra of “Bringing families together to save lives.”

Leep4Joy Books and Resources are full of faith, hope, healing and love, making a positive difference in the lives of youth globally. Some materials are in Spanish.
