Title: My Father is Taller than a Tree Author: Joseph Bruchac Illustrator: Wendy Anderson Halperin Publisher: Dial Books+ (March 31, 2010) Format: Hardcover; Pgs 28 Genre: Children’s Source: Library Ages: 3 and up
A father and son relationship can be a marvelous thing. As Joseph Bruchac and Wendy Anderson Halperin point out – fathers and sons come in all shapes and sizes and with each other’s help, their relationship can become deeper and more meaningful just by spending time together.
Not all children are as fortunate as the little boys in this book are, so the reader may have to pre-read this story to make sure that it is appropriate for the little one that they are reading with. If it is appropriate, it would make a great book for Father’s day and then follow it up with a craft project or card for their fathers.
