Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—In a jolly, rhyming text, this book describes various animal fathers, from a ponderous walrus ("Daddy/GIANT/Daddy/jiggle") to a soft-fleeced ram ("Bouncy/Daddy/happy/giggle"). Other critters include hummingbirds ("Daddy/busy"), gorillas ("Daddy/strong"), snails ("Daddy/slimy"), and snakes ("Daddy/long"). The vibrant, painterly illustrations, featuring fathers interacting with their offspring, are filled with action and color. Two spreads must be turned vertically for viewing, adding interest to the layout. The use of white backgrounds keeps the images large and clear. The simple text and warm-hued artwork create a feeling of security that will appeal to children.—Anne Parker, formerly at Milton Public Library, MA

About the Author

Tim Warnes and Jane Chapman live in rural southwest England and share a studio at home with views of open countryside. Mommy Mine is their first collaborative book project since their marriage ten years ago. Tim says, "It was fun playing with words and finding combinations to bounce off each other. Hopefully we've come up with something that's fun to read out loud." Jane, the best-selling illustrator of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, enjoyed painting a few of the more obscure animals as well as old children's-book favorites.



Jane Chapman is the best-selling illustrator of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, as well as Mommy Mine by Tim Warnes, her husband. Jane and Tim live in rural southwest England with their son, Noah, and share a studio at home with views of the open countryside.

My almost 2-year-old daughter loves reading this on her dada's lap!

Beyond the playful use of words, the book is a great expression of illustration by Jane Chapman (who also illustrated Bear Snores On).

My son-in-law is a great cuddly daddy and this book reminded me of his relationship with his child.

We love Tim Warnes books! Mommy Kisses and Daddy Hug are some of our favorite books around here. The illustrations are captivating and the cadence of the words are inviting. The kids very quickly memorize this book and join in when we read.

Two to four words on each page of rhyming, silly daddy descriptions from author Tim Warnes make this an ideal story time book for the toddler set. But it's the accompanying illustrations of Jane Chapman (Bear Snores On) that steal the show. Yes, some daddies jiggle and some are bouncy, some daddies burp, but all daddies hug! All sorts of animal daddies and their offspring are parodied here in illustrations large enough to hold the attention of a group of children. This bright colorful book showing a lion daddy with his cubs on the cover is a must for every library, and a plus for that personal bedtime collection; a great gift for a new dad.

I saw this in the library while I was pregnant with my daughter and I was doubled over in laughter as I read it aloud to my husband. What's not to love about getting to call him dirty and slimy in the name of a children's book? In all seriousness, this is an adorable book in a durable sleeved hardcover format with crisp, vividly-colored illustrations and rhythmic use of similar sounds and rhymes. I like to have this be the main book my husband reads to our daughter now (she's 8 months) on the logic that she will learn to associate the word "daddy" with him due to the repetitive use of the word throughout the book. Many props to all the dads out there who take the time to read to your children - it is one of the most valuable uses of your time as a father and your child likely appreciates this special time more than you realize.
