Synopses & Reviews
This dad focused companion to 2014’s I Love Mom follows two dinosaurs through a day with the child praising its father’s accomplishments and talents. From shows of affection (“Nobody’s kisses are so bristly./ Nobody’s stubble so/ double itchy”) to bike repair (“No one was ever such a fixer upper”) and just playing around there’s no competition as far as this young dino is concerned. But while Abbot coaxes substantial emotional tenderness out of the relationship in her loose mixed media illustrations the syntax of Walsh’s semi rhymed text can be convoluted (“Dad on wheels!/ Dad in the saddle/ cycles faster than a bike will pedal”) making for some herky jerky reading. Ages 4–8. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
Show Dad how much you care with this warm story of parent appreciation from the creators of The Perfect Hug and The Biggest Kiss, which School Library Journal called "a wonderful cuddle-up-and-read choice."
When the clock ticks around to a bright new day, I know today will be filled with fun things to do with dad.
From his stubbly kisses to his sky-high piggyback rides to his bedtime stories, no one is quite like dad. This charming picture book is a celebration of fathers everywhere
