ABOUT THE BOOK

What happens when the special bond between a father and son is put to the test?

In this poignant picture book, a young boy grows up revering his father, who has all sorts of nicknames for his champ, his buddy, his partner. Then one day, the father falls ill. He leaves home, only to return a broken man. The young boy is now left to wonder what will become of his father and their bond. Will they ever be the same again?

By the author of The Silence Seeker, My Thousand Special Names captures how children have a huge capacity for understanding, empathy and love.

 

"Once again Ben writes from the heart about a topic we don’t frequently find in classroom libraries. Love, loss and respect."
—Kristin Ziemke, teacher and author of Amplify: Digital Teaching and Learning in the K-6 Classroom

"A beautiful book."
—Kath Murdoch, education consultant
