What could have been a quiet afternoon at
home turns into an adventure for Jimmy and
his dad. Their couch turns into a boat! The
staircase becomes a mountain! And blankets
become a cozy hut, just right to cuddle inside.
The one thing they don't have to pretend is
how much they love one another.
Jennifer Plecas's bold artwork and lively text
come together in a celebration of imagination
and the love between a parent and child.
Great for Father's Day, but wonderful for any day that parent and child spend together.
