Lunch Bag Notes uses actual parent to teen lunch bag notes to enable readers to more effectively communicate with each other and deal with the challenge of the teenage years. Each short but profound note is followed by a journal page to help the reader personalize the advice.

LUNCH BAG NOTES is a must read for teenagers and their parents, especially dads. The book consists of the actual notes Al Parisi wrote his daughter Ann Marie on the outside of her lunch bag while she attended High School. Ann Marie shared the notes with a large group of friends who found the notes very motivational and were inspired by them to believe in themselves and to make sound choices in their lives. "My friends and I were blessed to read dad's daily notes of inspiration and gentle guidance and I wanted to share them with those teenagers and dads,who find it hard to express their feelings," says Ann Marie. Ann Marie lovingly saved her dad's messages and now presents them to her fellow teens and their dads in LUNCH BAG NOTES.

The short but often poignant and thought-provoking daily notes give readers an insight into the parent-child relationship and expressed emotions that are often felt but never shared.

LUNCH BAG NOTES is a thouroughly enjoyable book that helps bridge the 'generation gap' and the 'silence gap' between teens and their dads. Its an excellent way for teens to grasp their parent's attention and for parents to grasp their teen's attention.

Each inspirational note is followed by questions for reflection and blank lines for journaing.For more information and to see reader comments visit
