What's This Book About

Publisher Summary


<i>Because I’m your dad, you can have spaghetti for breakfast, French toast for dinner, and rocky road ice cream in the bathtub.</i> <p/> In a text that’s both playful and loving, a father expresses his hopes and dreams for a one-of-a-kind relationship with his child. Whimsical monster characters bring the silly and sweet scenes to life and keep the book universal. The book’s ending, a moving tribute to the author’s father, guarantees intergenerational appeal. <p/><i>Because I’m your dad, I will do all of these things for you and more . . .</i><br><i>because that’s what my dad did for me.</i>
