PreSchool-Grade 1–This book isn't a story; it's simply an illustrated list, with one or two numbered job titles for Dad per page. They include tailor, architect, and coach as well as taxi, ATM machine, and hand holder. While the text directly celebrates a father's functionality, the underlying theme is one of family stability and support. The understated watercolor cartoon drawings are set against a white background and focus readers' attention on the ever-changing Dads and the many children in their care. The illustrations have a quiet, gentle charm that helps make this offering inviting. Even so, readers will quickly get the gist of it–which limits the book's usefulness and longevity.–Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
