Soothing and life affirming story

I throughly enjoyed listening to Meghan narrate this book. It’s an easy listen, soothing and calming.

I listened in conjunction with the hard copy I purchased as well as on its own. The illustrations in the hard copy by Christian Robinson are phenomenal and help bring the audio version to life, making it magical.

I also love that it is not too long. It’s just the right length.

I would definitely recommend. This audio book lovingly explores the precious and unique bond between a father and son and the different experiences they may encounter on this journey of life.

Well done Meghan, looking forward to your next book.
