Father's Day & Taro Gomi


This is a sweet book by Taro Gomi about a little boy who gets lost in a department store while shopping with his dad. On each spread he thinks he spots his dad only to find that it's someone or something else — the die cut pages are clever. (Of course, it has a happy ending.)


At last! There he is! That's his tie... Oh, I don't believe it!


It's okay. He's over there! That's his suit... No, that suit is too fancy.


Happy Father's Day to all the great dads I see every day pushing strollers around, patiently explaining things and hanging out at the park — but especially to Auggie's dad, a very, very good one.
