In "The Twenty-Ninth Poem: Vol. 2," author Daddy Dave dedicates a variety of poems, stories, and observations to his daughter in honor of her twenty-ninth birthday. As with his first volume, which was dedicated to his son, this collection offers additional unique observations about life. Written in free-verse, non-rhyming style, many of the entries reflect the mystic union between father and daughter: "and then a moment later I blew a little harder and a little harder until finally I exhaled through my nose hard enough onto that little finger of yours that I made a slight honking sound, and you giggled. That was the seed of the magic, and within seconds the concept clicked with you, and you ran down the hallway showing off your newly acquired talent to your mother." ?from ?How to Blow Your Nose? No two children are exactly alike, and so this second volume differs from the first in that it includes some short stories, many written by the author's daughter when she was in the fourth grade and included here with minor modifications. Children and families are precious, and Daddy Dave encourages every parent to write down their own versions of unique stories so that they can be remembered, considered, and passed down to future generations.
