Here are some possibilities (references are to the first edition):

* On page 8, the father puts his hand on his son's shoulder.

* On page 12, the father keeps the boy "close to his side."

* On page 26, the boy holds onto his father's hand.

* Also on page 26, the father shares with his son his memories of Christmas.
