Book Trailer

When the young narrator of the story examines his dad's study, he discovers evidence that his dad is a great man with many accomplishments. For example: a compass implied that his dad was a great explorer; a gold pen must mean his dad is a powerful businessman. When he asks his dad about what he's found, he learns that the truth is a bit more down to earth, but it means that his dad is even more than what he thought he was.
The illustrated story sends a message to youngsters that their parents don't have to be wealthy and famous to be proud of them. Parents loving their kids and teaching them what they need to know are enough. And reading them bedtime stories, too!
