Book description

Dad wakes early every morning before the sun, heading off to work at the bakery. He kneads, rolls and bakes, and as the sun rises and the world starts its day, Dad heads home to his young daughter. Together they play, read, garden and-most importantly-they bake.

Why read it?

1 author picked Dad Bakes as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Simple beautiful language with lovely bright colored art tells the story of a dad getting up very early to go to his job at the bakery. The dad's arms are heavily tattooed and from the first wordless spread before the title page, we understand because of the author's note, that this was probably a dad who has returned from being incarcerated. The loving relationship between father and daughter is evident. It's a sweet slice-of-life story.

From Carol's list on diverse families.
