My daddy teaches me each day
To be strong in a gentle way.
And every single day I’m glad
That I’m his son and he’s my dad.
From award-winning author Lesléa Newman, known for her groundbreaking children’s book Heather Has Two Mommies, and New York Times bestselling illustrator AG Ford, comes a sweet ode to all the amazing things that daddies can do-fromknitting to cooking, from bike rides to camping trips, from telling stories to bandaging scraped knees. But most of all, this tender picture book highlights the best lesson a father can teach his son: how to show love and kindness.
