Dad and Pop
An Ode to Fathers and Stepfathers
author: Kelly Bennett
illustrator: Paul Meisel
I have two fathers. I call this one Dad, and this one Pop.
Dad is tall and wears suits. Pop is bald and wears boots. Dadís into gadgets and Popís into plants; one paints on easels, the other on walls; and they certainly donít share the same taste in music! In this funny, affectionate ode to fathers and stepfathers, a young girl explains that while Dad and Pop may seem completely different, in one crucial way theyíre exactly the same -- they both love her.
Perfect for Fatherís Day! Dad and stepdad have one important thing in common in a blended-family scenario many readers will happily recognize. (Ages 4-7)
