Émilie Vast’s From Father to Father, the companion to From Mother to
Mother, celebrates the link between fathers. Using male nesting dolls
and narrated by a father to his son, each spread describes one
generation’s link to another, from the birth of a
great-great-grandfather to the narrator’s own son. The artwork, as with
From Mother to Mother, is inspired by nature and changes
color and design with each generation; dolls grow smaller from
great-grandparents to child, throughout the book.
These are adorable board books that will resonate with kids as easily as
they will with adults, and it’s a wonderful way to show children the
relationship between parents, grandparents, and beyond.
