A father like that

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:

A boy knows all about fathers. He knows there are little things a father understands, like how to play checkers and when to bend the rules at bedtime. And he knows there are big things a father does, like banishing nightmares and spending special time with his son. Even if he doesn't have a father, a boy can imagine one just like that.

LeUyen Pham's tender drawings illustrate Charlotte Zolotow's timeless and timely appreciation of the special bond between fathers and sons.
