A celebration of fathers! A class is working on making a Father’s Day book, and each child gives us a little glimpse into how their father is unique and special to them. Eveline’s father sings her to sleep, Charlie loves how his father is extra patient with him, Jessica has two dads—her real dad is in Texas and her step-dad lives here, and Nicholas loves that he and his father read together (pictured in a Barnes and Noble type of store at the cafe...each reading a Viking book). The pictures are colorful, simple and support the text. This is a good introduction to all the different kinds of (heterosexual—no same sex families included—I’ll leave you to your own opinions about that) dads there are in a multitude of races and ethnicities and family situations.
