Her father can't walk, and often frets over all of the things that he can't do with her, like play soccer or go skiing. But she doesn't care in the least about what he can't do--"don't be sorry, Dad " she says. What she loves is what they do together
Together, she and her father navigate everything from icy ponds to ocean shores, rainy days to sunshine. She knows that her dad worries sometimes, but she is happy with him, just the way he is. This is a heart-warming, beautifully hand-illustrated story of love, appreciation, and acceptance.
