"16 poems celebrate precious, small, and meaningful moments between fathers and their children. . . Tender and honest, these poems pack a big emotional punch."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The line breaks and rhyme schemes make the poems accessible . . .the bulk of the emotion has to come from body positioning, posture, and the relations between figures on a page; Smith has mastered this, conveying so much with tilting heads and embracing arms. A masterful salute to fatherhood."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The poems are accessible and a true celebration of fatherhood. . . A lovely addition to poetry collections that may just inspire kids to write verse of their own."--School Library Journal, starred review

"A heartwarming, lyrical collection . . . A first-rate pick for Father's Day that celebrates dads and, as Smith notes in her dedication, "those who stand in the gap offering guidance, love, and support to children in need."--Booklist
