"The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born," Meghan said via a press release. “That poem became this story. Christian [Robinson] layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens. My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine."

Meghan also made sure to dedicate the book to her boys, writing, "For the man and the boy who make my heart go pump-pump."
