A little girl honors her dad and all the fun they have together in this sweet companion to In My Heart.

Our spunky heroine loves spending time with her dad. They ride bikes and swim in the pool! They can imagine exciting adventures, or just lounge around on a hot day. Being with her dad makes her feel safe and comforted, strong and powerful. She can confront the neighbor’s dog and get thrown up in the air! And when she gets too scared, or too angry, nothing calms her down better than a big hug from dad. This addition to the bestselling Growing Hearts series will make an appealing gift for Father’s Day.


"Roussey's illustrations stand out, the ink-drawn girl tiny next to her father's gigantic hands, emphasizing just how outsized his influence on her and her emotions is."
