A picture book of poems that celebrate fathers from a two-time Coretta Scott King Honor—winning poet.

Who is your hero? Who’s your best friend?

Who says he loves you again and again?


Told through the voice of a child, Anita Hope Smith's My Daddy Rules the World collection of poems celebrates everyday displays of fatherly love, from guitar lessons and wrestling matches to bedtime stories, haircuts in the kitchen, and cuddling in bed. These heartwarming poems, together with bold folk-art-inspired images, capture the strength and beauty of the relationship between father and child.
