The simple, yet meaningful, father and son activity becomes the focal point of this children's book. Through the eyes of an only child, the five minute catches, in between two jobs his father held, were precious moments and more than a physical activity. A catch becomes a metaphor for communication between father and son, parent and child as the dynamics of the catch change through the years, sadly end and are reborn as the son becomes a father himself. A catch is depicted as a process, a rite of passage and a gift to pass along.

A born and raised resident of Brooklyn, New York (the true epicenter of the World), Harold was inspired to write Hey Dad to honor his father, a child of the Great Depression. The message is clear. It doesn't take expensive equipment to make a connection with a child. It just takes a little bit of time. Harold has Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Wagner College and Masters in Counseling from NYU.Review:
