A rhyming text describes the commonplace things a boy can do with his father: “Pop shows me how to ride a bike. / I’m too grown-up now for a trike.” (Librarians will especially like the last one: “Papa reads to me every night / until he says that’s all, sleep tight.”) Although a first-person voice is used throughout, each spread depicts a different boy and dad, including a blind man and diverse ethnic groups. The bottom third of each double-page spread is a four-panel strip detailing the described activity; for example, the strip for “Pa waits for me when I go slow / because the streets are deep with snow” has the dad pulling the boy on a sled, the boy making snow angels and then tasting the snow, and the two of them sharing hot cocoa. Halperin’s soft palette reinforces the caring feeling between the 13 father-son pairs. The final spread is a montage of all the things the boys will do with their own children one day.
