Con Papá/With Papá

Mad Creek. Aug. 2022. 40p. Tr $14.95. ISBN 9780814215210. BL.
K-Gr 2–The feathered serpent delivers a small child to his father, who quickly embraces it in his arms. As time passes, the father and child share beautiful experiences together. They run, play, imagine, dance, and learn—with the father providing love and support each step of the way. Colorful illustrations show the joy in the relationship between father and child, with the text presented in both English and Spanish poetically describing the activities lovingly shared between father and child and the many ways a father provides love and support. The serviceable digital illustrations and spare text center around the child. The child’s gender is never identified in any way.
VERDICT A lovely bilingual picture book about the support of a father and how this endless support helps a child gain confidence to soar.
