Summary
A Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book of 2021

A New York Public Library Best Book of 2021


Dad wakes early every morning before the sun, heading off to work at the bakery. He kneads, rolls, and bakes, and as the sun rises and the world starts its day, Dad heads home to his young daughter. Together they play, read, garden, and--most importantly--they bake.

This lovely, resonant picture book was inspired by muralist Katie Yamasaki's work with formerly incarcerated people. With subtle, uncluttered storytelling amplified by her monumental and heartfelt paintings, she has created a powerful story of love, of family, and of reclaiming a life with joy.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This slice-of-life picture book captures the loving relationship between an Asian father and daughter and their shared love of baking. The father, depicted in the warm and energetic illustrations as bald and tattooed, wakes up before the sun rises to go work in a bakery. After his shift with other tattooed, racially diverse workers, the father returns home for some rest, after which he and his daughter prepare dough together. While the dough rises, they participate in activities, shown through vignettes, that capture the closeness of their bond. The father later surprises his daughter with a special bake. The colorful painted artwork conveys the tender and heartwarming tone of the story. The writing is very simple and, at first glance, so is the story. It is not until the author's note at the end that the reader learns about the author's inspiration for the book, which came from her experience working in correctional facilities as a muralist. Resources to learn more about organizations helping families rebuild after incarceration cap off this heartfelt work."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Inspired by families affected by incarceration, muralist Yamasaki (Everything Naomi Loved) follows a bald, tattooed, apparently East Asian father and his child in this deceptively simple picture book. "Dad wakes," the volume opens; he stretches as a clock reads 3 a.m., a golden ribbon with a protracted "yawn" stretching from his mouth. Heading out through empty city streets ("The moon shines./ Dad walks"), he arrives at Rise Up! Bakery, where he joins tattooed Black and brown-skinned employees in baking bread. Author-illustrator Yamasaki offers spare, cadenced prose: "He scoops./ He kneads./ He rolls.// Dough rises./ Dad makes small rolls,/ Dad makes large loaves." At daybreak, Dad returns home; after resting, he and his child make their own dough, waiting for it to rise as they spend time together in paneled vignettes--gardening, reading, playing soccer--before Dad gives his child a warm surprise. Richly saturated, dynamic paintings showcase expressive, inclusive community, and intricately detailed spreads offer plenty to pore over in this meditative tale centering the significance of daily rhythms as well as familial and community love. Back matter includes an affecting author's note, including links to organizations that support formerly incarcerated people and their families. Ages 6--8. (Sept.)"
