In Nothing for Father's Day, a dad who has received less than useful gifts the previous Father's Day tells his family that he wants nothing for Father's Day. The family honors his request but gives him something special that doesn't come in a box. The picture-to-text correspondence and repetitive text patterns contribute to the readers' enjoyment of the story.
