Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A child's visit with Dad is a day full of quiet pleasures in a genuine, tender story many young readers will relate to.

Tim lives with his mom. His dad lives in another town. But today, Tim's dad is coming on the train so the two can spend the whole day together — just Tim and Dad. Everywhere the pair goes — the movie theater, the pizzeria, the library — Tim proudly tells the people they meet, "This is my dad!" At the end of the day, Tim is sad to see his dad go but knows that they'll be together again soon.

Author Bo R. Holmberg and illustrator Eva Eriksson offer a sensitive and honest portrait of a special day between father and son.

Review:

"Children with similar experiences will appreciate this gentle support as they cope with the realities of divorce; the unmistakable love between child and parent is palpable." Kirkus Reviews
