Side by Side : A Celebration of Dads, Hardback Book

Side by Side : A Celebration of Dads Hardback


A heartfelt and playful ode to the father-child relationship, by two-time Caldecott-medal-winning author Chris Raschka King and Jester, Boat and Captain, Mountain and Climber... fathers and children are all of these things and more in Chris Raschka's tribute to this familial pair.

Each stanza presents three scenarios in which the father and child's roles are subtly balanced.

The pairs vary between stanzas, coming together in a visit to an ice-cream truck.

With minimal text and maximum emotion, the book encapsulates Raschka's own passion and nostalgia for being a father to his [now-grown] son. Ages 3-5
