Description
Award-winning author Joseph Bruchac delivers a charming and heart-warming story about fathers and sons. Perfect with other Father's Day gems like Alison Ritchie's "Me and My Dad" and Sam McBratney's "Guess How Much I Love You."
In this tender tribute to dads everywhere, lyrical rhymes capture heartwarming moments shared between thirteen diverse father-and-son pairs. Everyday activities, like bike riding and raking leaves, become a reminder that life's simple pleasures can offer the greatest rewards.
"Celebrates the role fathers play in their sons' lives and the many kinds of families who live in the U.S. Sons will find comfort on every page."--"Publishers Weekly"
"A charming celebration of fathers, dads, pops, papas, and pas."--"School Library Journal.
