When my dad told me bedtime stories, I heard about Duke Snyder and Willie Mays, Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium instead of fairy tales. He taught me how to throw, catch, and bat, but he also imparted to me the history of the game.|

Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club Parents always want what is best for their children, regardless of culture or ethnicity. In The Joy Luck Club, by Amy Tan, and in "Life With Father" by Itabari Njeri, the parents express their parental methods upon their daughters.

(pg 40)Nature and all of her wondrous facets, especially the human body, was Whitman's religion. Walt Whitman was indeed an intensely spiritual man in his own unconventional way.
