From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a daddy. Here, Greene shows a man spending time with his son through all four seasons. They camp, rake leaves, walk in the snow, and fly kites. Although the months are not named, there is a spread for each one. The rhyming and metered text is simple with only one couplet per page, and the poetry flows naturally. The words cross the illustrations in wavy, large-print type that leads the eye from page to page. Both the text and illustrations give a sense of cheerfulness and warmth in the child's suburban neighborhood. Smith adds enough detail to the watercolor and acrylic scenes to make them active and interesting. Tim Warnes's Daddy Hug (HarperCollins, 2008) addresses the same topic through loving animal fathers.—Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Kirsten G. Cutler on September 22, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Rhyming quatrains present sweetly a young child's love for his daddy, lyrically listing all the special things they do together. "Daddy is a fish with fins when summer heats the air. We splish and splash in crashing waves - a wiggling, wriggling pair." The watercolor and acrylic double spread shows an exuberant father and son splashing in the water. Another rhyme describes how "Daddy is my pillow where I rest my sleepy head. When camping far beneath the stars, he's better than a bed." There is a lovely watercolor and acrylic picture of the two on a camping trip with the father lying down with his arm draped around his son whose head is on his stomach. An owl watches from a tree and a dog snoozes by a large glowing campfire. These delightful and brightly colored pictures visibly illustrate the joy and love that exists between the father and son and will show up well for an audience. Pair with Asch's Just like Daddy for a heart warming story time.

My 2 yr old son loves this story. We have the mommy and the daddy one and he asks for them by name. They are his favorite.

This book and its companion mommy book are beautifully written. The pictures are inviting, also. I have given the two books as a set to several sets of parents. My husband was the first gift recipient!
