As Daddy and his little doodlebug snack on potoodle chips, padoodle their canoe, and count firefloodles, they savor the special joys of companionship - doing the things they love together! Bruce Degen's inventive rhyme will resonate with fans of his classics Jamberry and Sailaway Home. The lushly colored paintings are rendered with a crisp, black outline evoking the illustration style of children's books of the 1930's. Bruce Degen invites readers to enter into a world of bugs galore, where buttons serve as the wheels of a teacup buggy and pencils make the perfect swing set! This fanciful storyoodle will entrance young doodlebugs everywhere.
What do doodlebugs do together...
Daddy and his doodlebug doodle the things that doodlebugs like to do. They snack on potoodle chips while walking through the zoo, ride the caboodle car on the train, and padoodle their canoe through the sun and the rain. And at night when it's time to turn out the light, they say, "Don't let the bedboodles bite!" Because that's what doodlebugs do!
With inventive rhyme and lush paintings, this book tells a heartwarming story about Daddy Doodlebug and his child that makes this book an ideal read-along for Father's Day. Full color.
