Daddy Daughter Dinner Dance
By Bill Quateman & India 

One Father Examines…..
Families, Daughters and Love

     Daddy Daughter Dinner Dance by Bill Quateman and his daughter, India, is a delightful gift or self-help book.

      Quateman calls his a blended family and it truly is, in about every way a reader can imagine. This book is about his experiences with his children and mates and the family in which he was raised. It is also a love letter to his daughter, an exercise in including children in the lives of their parents, a book of unfettered joyful children's art and poetry.

         Dinner Dance is also a book that looks and feels like a treasure, one you'd be proud to give to a new father.

     I mustn't forget the practical. After all the sharing and love are done, this colorful book includes resource pages for family movies, books on rearing a child, and books about personal growth. You'll also find suggestions for available support for untraditional families, for stepparenting, for spiritual healing and for fathering that can be found on the web. 4aqThe work pages for playing and thinking are also a delight.

     Bill Quateman didn't leave out much-probably because he writes from experience and that, as we all know, is the best teacher.
