Won’t Papa Be Suprised!

Mikele loves ribbons, and today she sees them everywhere — in the sunshine, the flowers, even the streamers of a wind sock. The bright, sparkly images remind her of something special, a surprise she has for her papa on this not so ordinary day. But through breakfast, chores, and a tea party on the porch, Mikele never guesses that Papa has a surprise for her too!

This portrait of a special day shared by father and daughter is perfectly captured by Terri Cohlene’s playful text and the warm, fanciful illustrations by Elizabeth Sayles.
