My Father Is Taller Than a Tree

My Father Is Taller Than a Tree Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning author Joseph Bruchac delivers a charming and heart-warming story about fathers and sons. Perfect with other Father's Day gems like Alison Ritchie's Me and My Dad and Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You.

In this tender tribute to dads everywhere, lyrical rhymes capture heartwarming moments shared between thirteen diverse father-and-son pairs. Everyday activities, like bike riding and raking leaves, become a reminder that life's simple pleasures can offer the greatest rewards.

"Celebrates the role fathers play in their sons' lives and the many kinds of families who live in the U.S. Sons will find comfort on every page."—Publishers Weekly

"A charming celebration of fathers, dads, pops, papas, and pas."—School Library Journal

 

Review:

"This friendly poem celebrates the role fathers play in their sons' lives and the many kinds of families who live in the U.S. Working in crayon, Halperin draws father-son pairs around the country: an Asian father and son in San Francisco, a blind father with his son at a farmer's market, an African-American duo playing hide-and-seek. Smaller panels reveal more details about their lives, while Bruchac's verse runs along the bottom: 'He pats my back when I feel sad./ He understands 'cause he's my dad.' The softly shaded drawings suggest similarly quiet emotions, and small sons will find comfort on every page. Ages 3 — 5." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Meet thirteen unique fathers-and-child pairs who come from diverse backgrounds and live in different places. Though they are not all the same, their relationships show us an important truth: Even the simplest and most familiar activities become special when dads and kids do them together. This heartwarming book is set in rhyme and features warm, colorful illustrations. Every family will find something to love about this sweet book.

Synopsis:

My father is taller than a tree,

but sometimes he looks up at me.

Mi papá likes to hear me sing.

He?s very good at listening.

Pop doesn?t need to buy me stuff.

Just being with him is enough.
