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!
Marjorie Parker lives in Denver, Colorado.
Its 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 its like to be little. They know that pancakes werent meant to be round, they arent worried about looking goofy, and they love to mix up the words in bedtime stories. Alley fills his watercolorswhich range from spot art to full spreadswith 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 36. (Mar.)2012 Reed Business Information
