Little Boy by Alison McGhee (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2008)
"A father reflects on how the future depends upon the all of the little things in his son's world, from his yellow drinking cup to a big cardboard box."
This book, along with author Alison McGhee's previous title, Someday, is a potential tear-jerking read for parents of little children. Little Boy is an endearing book about boyhood and fatherhood alike. Perhaps best appreciated by parents themselves, this still works as a book to be shared with boys as a sweet tribute to all that makes being a small boy (and the parent of one) a precious time to not be rushed.
