On his Papa’s shoulders is exactly where Dudu loves to be! Whether it’s jumping in puddles with Tata in the rain, greeting the neighborhood cat on the quiet back streets with Gogo, or holding hands with Mama while they rush to make the bell, Dudu is always excited to walk to school with his family. But nothing is better than walking to school with his dad, who puts Dudu up on his shoulders to see the town and always says “I love you” when he says goodbye.
A sweet ode to fatherhood and the special relationships children share with each member of their family, On My Papa’s Shoulders reminds us that it’s not about where we’re going, but rather the people who walk with us along the way.
