You Made Me A Dad

"I loved you before I saw you...But before I'd finished imagining who you'd be, you were here. And you were perfect."

In this touching celebration of fatherhood, the close bond between parent and child comes to life with heartwarming resonance. Simple moments, like listening to a child's stories or gazing at the stars, become shimmering moments to treasure. Laurenne Sala's tranquil text, accompanied by Mike Malbrough's tender watercolor illustrations, creates a warm look at the joys, fears, and responsibilities of being a dad over the years, making it the perfect picture book for expectant fathers and already-fathers everywhere.

"[The father] describes his child’s arrival in simple words that will resonate with all parents: 'you were perfect.' From here the tone shifts from anticipation to exaltation, as Dad recounts the important things he is learning... like 'how to dance silly' and 'hide in the sneakiest spots'.... The star of this show is the very special bond between Dad and child." — Kirkus Reviews
