This is a beautiful book that tells the story of Pete, a boy whose dad once used to run and swing him around like dads do. . . only now his dad is barely able to walk — much less play or rough-house with him. Pete is feeling hurt and even angry. He’s confused about why this is happening.
But Pete’s dad assures him that even though he can’t wrestle with him the way he used to, or run and throw a ball, he is and always will be Pete’s dad.
