Written in verse, Nathan and Father: A Walk of Wonder is the perfect length for story time, bedtime, or for sharing in the classroom. Do you know a child who likes to ask questions? In this book, Nathan’s dad’s creative answers allow us a peek at fathers and sons around the world. Just as Nathan and his father spend time together in their part of the world, fathers and sons enjoy each other’s company on every continent. While walking in the north woods of North America, they spot a blue jay. In Europe, a mute swan flies overhead. While planting in South America, they see a harmless young snake. In Africa, a guinea fowl wanders near their soccer game. A father draws sand pictures in the Australian desert near Mount Uluru, and Mt. Fuji holds onto its snow in Asia. All the illustrations were created entirely with one pair of scissors and mounds of fabric, suggesting how love weaves us all together.
