Dads

By John Coy

Simple, poetic text and striking photographs celebrate all that fathers do—from working and fixing to cooking and hugging. Diverse and inclusive, this book is a perfect Father's Day gift!

Celebrate all that fathers do: building, fixing, cooking, cleaning, laughing, crying, hugging, playing and more! John Coy and Wing Young Huie—the author and photographer behind Their Great Gift—reunite for a new book that shows a wide range of fathers and children, particularly highlighting families of color and lower-income families, who often aren't depicted in children's books. This beautiful book is a perfect Father's Day gift!

  • Author John Coy is a father and grandfather, and in this book he offers an expansive, nonstereotypical view of all fathers do
  • Photos are from award-winning photographer Wing Young Huie
  • Offers a refreshing alternative to typical Father's Day books, many of which feature animal families rather than human families
