My Father Is Taller than a Tree

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Wendy Halperin. In lumbering rhymes ("Pop shows me how to ride a bike. / I'm too grown-up now for a trike"), Bruchac describes the many pleasures that boys and their fathers can share: raking leaves, walking into town, laughing together. Each spread features multi-paneled, soft-hued illustrations that help narrate the stories of thirteen diverse father-and-son pairs.
