Publisher's Description

An endearing celebration of dads who are young at heart

Just in time for Father's Day, this playful book follows four father-child pairs as they spend happy, silly times together, popping bubble wrap and watching cartoons and taking part in shoppingcart races. These are dads who aren't worried about looking goofy or getting their hair wet - dads who still remember what it's like to be little. Don't be fooled. They may look like grown-ups on the outside, But underneath they're just like you . . . Kids!

Author Bio

Marjorie Parker lives in Denver, Colorado.

Publisher's Weekly

It’s a lucky kid, writes Parker, who has a father who never grew up. These fathers understand how to have fun with their kids because they “remember what it’s like to be little.” They know that “pancakes weren’t meant to be round,” they “aren’t worried about looking goofy,” and “they love to mix up the words in bedtime stories.” Alley fills his watercolors—which range from spot art to full spreads—with humorous details: one father throws a rock in a fountain, splashing a nearby woman, and another crashes a shopping cart into a shelf of cans. Parker lovingly portrays playful, imaginative, and inventive fathers who bring joie de vivre to parenting. Ages 3–6. (Mar.)2012 Reed Business Information
