I absolutely love the illustrations in this book. I also really loved that the text in this book is written like a letter from a child to their father telling things they love about him and are grateful for. The only part I didn’t love was when it mentions how their dad is great “even when I bug you” — a cute pun with the illustration, but I didn’t love that part of the text. Not a huge thing, just a personal preference. :)
