Dad and Pop: An Ode to Fathers and Stepfathers

Dad and Pop: An Ode to Fathers and Stepfathers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perfect for Fathers Day! Dad and stepdad have one important thing in common in a blended-family scenario many readers will happily recognize.

I have two fathers. I call this one Dad, and this one Pop.

Dad is tall and wears suits. Pop is bald and wears boots. Dads into gadgets and Pops into plants; one paints on easels, the other on walls; and they certainly dont share the same taste in music! In this funny, affectionate ode to fathers and stepfathers, a young girl explains that while Dad and Pop may seem completely different, in one crucial way theyre exactly the same — they both love her.

Review:

"A girl with red pigtails good-naturedly explains that she has two fathers: Dad (her biological father) and Pop (her stepfather). Both emerge with distinctive personalities ('Pop takes pictures. Dad takes naps'), though, the more she compares them, the less different they seem ('Dad teaches me to cook. So does Pop.... Dad loves music. So does Pop'). Also clear: that they both love her. The understated narration and subtly humorous mixed media cartoons make a potentially complicated — but familiar — situation feel easy and natural. Ages 4 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In this funny, affectionate ode to fathers and stepfathers, a young girl explains that while Dad and Pop may seem completely different, in one crucial way they're exactly the same--they both love her. Full color.
