The perfect Father's Day gift for dad to show him he is your hero

A laugh-out-loud board book listing all the ways one child's dad is NOT a superhero: he can't leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet, or shoot webs out of his wrists.

But even though Dad doesn't have superpowers, he is still a hero at heart.

Celebrating the simple moments that make every dad a hero in their child's eyes, this is the perfect Father's Day gift, birthday gift for dad, or special way for a child to say, "you're my hero" any day.
