This would be a great book for a father/son relationship. It's always nice to have a father figure to look up and know he'll do anything in the world for you if he could!!!!
This book is a poetic book about a child's emotions throughout the day. It would be good to use to talk about metaphor: "I am the sand on Daddy Island." When I thought of it as a "daddy book" I didn't love it (partly because I knew it wasn't the type my husband would especially love), but when I realized it was about emotions, I enjoyed it more. Plus, my kids liked it.

Son picked this book up at the Library. Cute story with fun illustration of what is actually happen and how the child "Sees" the moment.

Fun to read by flashlight too!
