Charlie and his dad build everything together. They build sandcastles at the beach, they build blocks in Dad’s office, and they even build a doghouse for Rocky and a tree house high above the backyard. But Charlie’s favorite thing to build is a pillow fort where he and Dad can cuddle together. This board book combines the perennial concept of construction with a tender tale about the importance of quality time shared between father and son.


"The standout here is Bianchini's cheerfully retro, thick-lined art, done in muted greens, blues, and reds . . . Father/son construction projects have never been more tender. "
Kirkus Reviews
"This colorful and short rhyming board book will engage readers as they relate to their own special moments with Dad - especially snuggling up to bedtime stories about special hobbies."
Midwest Book Review
