Book Summary

My Dad is a Freemason is the first book ever written for children about Freemasonry. Narrated through the words of a young boy who details his father’s Masonic experience, the son explains what a Freemason is, what ritual initiations and lodge meetings are like, and what activities Freemasons are involved in. The simple text of the main narrative is geared towards readers ages eight and up and is accompanied by original photographic illustrations depicting activities in a typical Masonic lodge. A historical subtext parallels the central story with anecdotes about famous Masons and is richly illustrated with images of Masonic artwork and ritual paraphernalia. The historical text is aimed at slightly more advanced readers and provides vocabulary-building skills linked to a Masonic glossary at the end of the book. The book also includes a “Personal Masonic History” form, providing a genealogical research activity for kids. Written by an active Freemason, My Dad is a Freemason is the first installment of The Masonic Family Series.
