If I went shopping for a dad, 
Here is what I’d buy:
One who would always stop 
To answer a little boy’s “Why?”

One who would always speak kindly 
To a little girl or boy,
One who would give to others
A bit of sunshine and joy.

I’d pick a dad that followed 
The Bible’s Golden Rule,
And one who went regularly
To church and Sunday School.

I’d buy the very finest dad 
To place on our family tree,
And then I’d try to live like him 
So he would be happy with me.—Helen Kitchell Evans
