What makes a dad so special? This picture book shows us the many things that make this dad so special from baking cookies to splashing in puddles. He is no super hero or rocket scientist but he is more than those things to his child. The illustrations of this book will sweep you away into the world of this father and child, and I promise you won't want to leave.  

— Tonya


My Dad is a beautifully illustrated, stereotype-busting celebration of all the everyday things one child's dad does to make him so wonderfully, daddish-ly awesome!

He may not be a superhero, or an astronaut, or a secret agent… but my dad is still the best dad in the world!

From baking cookies and gardening to playing make-believe and watching the sunset, a child reveals all the simple yet wonderful things he loves to do with his dad.

With lyrical rhyming text and gentle illustrations, this is a joyous celebration of fatherhood that creates a special reading experience between a child and their father.

Inspire a child to explore what makes the relationships in their own life special with this touching book.
