In this sweet, rhyming picture book, a little boy thinks about all the special things he does with his dad--schoolwork, reading, swimming lessons, haircuts, and more--and decides to craft a present, a homemade blue ribbon, to show his dad how much he loves him. The boy counts down the hours until his dad comes home, recalling their favorite memories and preparing the special gift.

Simple text for the earliest readers and cuddly squirrel characters make this precious picture book the perfect way to celebrate Dad on Father's Day, or any day of the year.
