About The Book

Some animal daddies comfort their babies, or hold them tight, or face every danger for them. But the little boy in this heartwarming story knows his daddy does all of that--and more--for him and is the very best daddy of all. In the tradition of her New York Times best-selling story My Mother Is Mine, Marion Dane Bauer celebrates the love and bond between parents and their children. Featuring Leslie Wu's glowing illustrations, this loving message is perfect for sharing at Father's Day or anytime.
