Our Shed: A Father-Daughter Building Story

A father and daughter have plans to build a backyard shed for storing the necessities of family life — a lawn mower, sprinkler, sleds, kid toys. Dad is in charge of the practicalities, while his daughter adds her own imaginative creative spin to each element, from turning the plywood into a dance floor to choosing not one, not two, but three colors of paint. In the end, they are both happy with their collaboration. And, just as dad passes building skills on to his daughter, so does his daughter eventually pass those skills on to her own son when they fix up the peeling shed.

This sweet, nostalgic father-daughter story celebrates DIY families as well as the unique creativity and spontaneity of each individual child. Parents will smile at the imaginative touches and occasional pretend-play breaks that crop up during the building, while kids will love the loving dad who not only takes time to be a daddy-dragon, but also to show his daughter how to choose materials and how to check that every board is level and straight. It's a charming depiction of a father-daughter bond that grows along with their building project.
