My Review: Mason felt sad as he watched his friend Nathaniel and his father playing soccer. He wished his father was around so he too can play soccer with him.

His mother explained to him that fathers for many different reasons aren’t around. The book doesn’t say what happened to Mason’s father, but his mother assured him that there are important people in his life like his grandpa that takes him fishing and tells funny jokes, his Uncle Chris and Uncle Keith, who taught him how to play basketball and also his big brother Carter who taught him how to ride a bike and tie his shoes.

Mason knew he was special because he not only has support from his family, but support from his coach, his friend’s father, and teachers.

There are a lot of young boys growing up without their fathers around. But this book can encourage not only young boys but girls too. It will help them discover that there are amazing people in their life that will keep them safe and teach them the value of hard work. Illustrations by Colette Robbins is bold and colorful which helps tell the story. I  highly recommend this book for classroom reading and home library.

  1. That sounds like a wonderful story that is very relevant to lots of kids today. When I subbed in a class on Friday, a boy told me his father had been in the army, but he died. This would’ve been a great book to read to him. Thanks for the review.

  2. I think this is a good book for kids to help them understand that there are all types of families, some who don’t have dads and that it is important to reinforce and encourage kids to be thankful for the positive role modes that they do have in their lives.
