My Father is Taller Than a Tree is a celebratory children's picture book by Abenaki storyteller Joseph Bruchac. Together with illustrator Wendy Anderson Halperin, the pair creates a charming book for early readers or for library read aloud sessions about the close relationship between fathers and sons across cultures. The book features thirteen pairs of father and son examples. A father is shown helping his son ride a bike, another shows a winter scene with papa pulling his boy on a sled, and one shows a father reading to his son before bedtime. The multicultural aspect of diverse cultures is evident and the inclusion of a visually impaired father, his seeing-eye dog and his son make this a welcome addition to the literature about the universal bond between fathers and their sons. The rhyming verses on each page express the love and caring connections shown in the pastel, crayon-colour drawings by the artist. The final spread depicts how each son will interact with his son one day in the future. Recommended. ATOS Reading Level: 1.8; Guided Reading Level: N.
