Sometimes we tell stories about pictures in albums, sometimes about the pictures on our bodies. No matter how the storytelling is facilitated, stories connect generations and create homes. This sweet picture book does just that: creates home through stories.

This heartwarming little picture book shows a father reminiscing about his life's most important moments through telling his baby boy about his tattoos. It is very sweet and it not only normalizes tattoos but also encourages story telling!

An adorable way to introduce children - and their families, sometimes! - to the reasons why people get tattoos.

Great story about a father with tattoos and a son who loves to hear the stories related to them.

A perfect book for father and son to share, but especially if Dad has tattoos! Detailed ink and watercolor illustrations feel tattoo-like and show the reader that there is a lot more story behind each of these tattoos...maybe to share when his son is older. A very unique book!

Heartwarming story of a father recounting his most treasured life moments for his son. Reminiscent of Lane Smith's Grandpa Green, but with ink!
