For fathers and sons everywhere, Like Father, Like Son is a warm, universal picture book from a New York Times bestselling and award-winning team celebrates everything that makes dads special.

My daddy teaches me each day,
To be strong in a gentle way.

And every single day I’m glad
That I’m his son and he’s my dad.

From award-winning author Lesléa Newman, known for her groundbreaking children’s book Heather Has Two Mommies, and New York Times bestselling illustrator AG Ford comes a sweet ode to all the amazing things that daddies can do—from knitting to cooking, from bike rides to camping trips, from telling stories to bandaging scraped knees. But most of all, this tender picture book highlights the best lesson a father can teach his son: how to show love and kindness.

Share special moments with dad on Father's Day or any day with this warm-hearted picture book.
