Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 1 There are so many books that celebrate the mother-child relationship, it's nice to have one that highlights kids and dads. In a jaunty, if not always smooth, rhyme, Levine lists the many things that daddies do to make a child's world more fun, secure, and happy. Instead of humans, the main characters are animals. A big bunny gives horsey rides to his young ones; a pig can fix a faucet and button a blouse. On the playground, in the grocery store or the kitchen, while soothing or helping a child ride a bike, fathers are front and center. By using animals in the watercolor art, Bendall-Brunello provides an extra layer of humor, as when a lion's roar comes from a fox. Mostly this is just sweet and comforting, and many lucky children will see themselves and their relationships with their dads mirrored on the pages. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-This picture book features a variety of animal fathers who give "horsey rides," repair the plumbing, go shopping, bake pies, read books, and offer comfort. While this title presents a positive image of dads, it is more of a listing of what these fathers do than a well-told story with a strong main character. Although the watercolor illustrations are playful and humorous, the rhymes are sometimes choppy. Stick with choices that have a bit more plot to them, such as Mercer Mayer's Just Me and My Dad (Turtleback, 1982), Stephen Michael King's A Special Kind of Love (Scholastic, 1996), and Joanne Ryder's My Father's Hands (HarperCollins, 1994).-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
