Book description:
PreSchool-Grade 1—Short, simple rhymes are highlighted by Halperin’s wonderfully expressive, soft yet colorful crayon and pencil drawings. Each of the 13 diverse father/son duos is pictured on a spread in a large illustration accompanied by four small ones, showing the two sharing an activity, such as raking leaves, biking, or spending a day in the park. The pictures could stand alone with their gentle, loving depictions, and they are the focal point of this book. The uneven, singsong sentences are simple enough for early readers: “Dad knows the times I like to hide/and when to call me back inside./Pop doesn’t need to buy me stuff./Just being with him is enough.” Though the rhymes are unexceptional, the illustrations make this book a charming celebration of fathers, dads, pops, papas, and pas.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
