Because Iím your dad, you can have spaghetti for breakfast, French toast for dinner, and rocky road ice cream in the bathtub.
In a text thatís 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 bookís ending, a moving tribute to the authorís father, guarantees intergenerational appeal.
Because Iím your dad, I will do all of these things for you and more . . .
because thatís what my dad did for me.
