A heartwarming celebration of the special relationship between a father and daughter from Instagram sensation Soosh.

Whether they're playing make-believe, making you smile, or warding off monsters under the bed, dads are always there when you need them. Debut picture book artist Soosh celebrates fathers with a gorgeously illustrated and moving story about the parent-child bond.

When Soosh first posted her initial series of images of a larger-than-life father and his adorable daughter on Instagram, fans from across the world immediately took notice with over 2 million views on a popular viral content website in a single week.

These illustrations now come together in a universally relatable story of familial love for parents and children to share.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is so, so sweet. If only every child could have a father like the one in this book.

There's really no plot here, just vignettes of precious moments between a father and his child. They're there for each other, they help each other, and they teach each other. It's the kind of relationship every child deserves, and the sort that every parent should aspire to.

The illustrations are truly beautiful.

What more is there to say? This is just a lovely little book.
