This innovative series grew out of a desire to provide all children with the opportunity to see themselves within the books they are reading and to identify with the children and families they see. The diversity of today's families is clearly captured. The simple text and engaging photographs explore the relationship between very young children and their environment. Each book is illustrated with realistic and comforting photographs. Children from various familial, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds are interacting with their fathers. The simple text and engaging photos invite and encourage discussion between adult and child as they have fun exploring the images together.
