Savvy Stories (Savvy Stories #1) - Dan Alatorre

Savvy Stories: Funny Things I Learned From My Daughter by Dan Alatorre
Have enjoyed the author's other works and know this will be a good read also.
Starts out with details of the birth of Savvy and although it's comical at times things get drastically dangerous shortly after.
Daddy attempts to keep his head on and keeping things positive but he's not sure how long he can hold up. Medical emergencies and the family copes.
Loved hearing how it all works out during the bad times. Such community support and family as well. What I liked about this book was the honesty although some things the author is bound to made fun of as the circumstances are embarrassing but he's so outgoing with it all. Through the good times and bad times he stays on top of it all as new milestones are achieved. Feel like I got a bonus with all the talk of the vineyard as there is one in town and it answers a lot of questions I had about them.
Especially like the 'when you're a kid' segment at the end, kind of a wrap up of the things discussed.
Extensive author bio and work history at the end of the book. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest review.
