A book about Dad and Stepdad for kids

Dad and Pop: An Ode to Fathers & Stepfathers

By Kelly Bennett, illustrated by Paul Meisel

Candlewick, $15.99

"I have two fathers," the young narrator begins in this affecting story of her relationships with her father and stepfather.

She lists their differences (one is bald, one is not; one "takes pictures," the other "takes naps") and the things that each man teaches her. The buoyant images match the upbeat tone of the text. Ages 4 to 8.
