They make pancakes on Sunday morning, and they make dinner, too. They teach the ins and outs of throwing a ball, and drive you to violin lessons. On Christmas they wear a Santa Claus suit, on birthdays their smiles are brighter than the candles on the cake. And when the moms of the world say "No!", they've been known to say yes. Dads are all this and more, and celebrating the very special relationship between fathers and children is Me and My Dad .

Edited and illustrated by Stuart Hample, co-editor of the million-copy-bestselling Children's Letters to God , here are dozens of touching testimonies about dads straight from their kids. Full of surprises and unexpected truth, flavored with a blend of love and laughter, fearlessly honest (what dad doesn't turn to putty in his child's hands?), it's a collection to warm any dad's heart:

"When he comes home late he comes into my room and stands there for a while looking at me. Sometimes I pretend I'm asleep. Then he pulls up the blanket and kisses me on my head." -Kevin

"Whenever you ask him a question he can go on and on until you could die. But there are many good things about him too." -Bruce
It's like Father's Day, all year long.
