Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up-These 19 poems celebrate fathers and their role in families. Most of the selections are written from an adult perspective, as the narrators look back to childhood and remember all that their dads were and did and how much is owed to them. Sentimental in tone, the overriding message is of love, appreciation, and respect for a father who was always there-strong, faithful, and dependable. Illustrations of loving, multicultural families are drawn in muted tones on beige backgrounds, complementing the hushed, reverent tone. Collections with more child appeal include Myra Cohn Livingston's Poems for Fathers (Holiday, 1989; o.p.), Mary Ann Hoberman's Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers (Turtleback, 1993), In Daddy's Arms I Am Tall (Lee & Low, 2000), and John Micklos's Daddy Poems (Boyds Mills, 2003).-Sally R.
