Daddies
In this oversized paperback a little boy asks his dad for five more minutes of playtime before bed, so that they can pretend to be animals together. As father and son change shape from rhinos to chameleons to bears, the little boy recites rhymes about the fun things they do together as animals. This is an entertaining book with large and colorful illustrations, and the rhymes are playful and will be fun for parents to read. What is especially admirable about Daddies is that this is not just a book solely about fathers, but rather about fathers and sons playing and working together.

Parents of adopted children should be cautioned that one of the rhymes begins: "My daddy is a snail, and I'm a snail by birth." This was certainly not intended to exclude adopted children, but it may prove problematic for some families, especially those who have adopted transracially. The companion volume, Papas, also presents the same book in Spanish.

My 4 year old daughter has checked this book out at the library for the past 4 months. She reads it with her dad almost every night. She has memorized it and has made up sound effects to go along with it. We are purchasing this book now so we don't have to keep renewing it at the library. Great book for small children to read with their dads!

I got this for my husband's first Father's Day. It was a hit! The artwork in this book is fabulous and it reads nicely and rhythmically. The story is very cute...child plays pretend we're animals with the dad. I recommend this for anyone looking for a good bedtime daddy story and anyone who loves animals.

I love this book devoted to daddies and have made sure each of my
grandchildren have a copy. All are dogeared from use. Lovely examples
and illustrations of many different animal dads.
