A Card For My Father

by Samantha Thornhill

A Card For My Father is the first title in a trilogy of picture books exploring the lasting effects, big and small, of a father’s incarceration on his first-grade daughter, Flora. In A Card For My Father, how can Flora complete her class assignment to write a Father’s Day card to a father she’s never known? A Card For My Father illustrates the devastating effects that a family member’s incarceration can have on loved ones and shows how children of different races and backgrounds can find common ground and forge friendships.
