With Dad, It's Like That Hardcover – May 1, 2016

From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Mom is out for the night, putting Dad in charge of bath, dinner, and bedtime. On each occasion Clare says, "Dad…That's not how Mom does it." At bath time and dinner, Dad opts for his own methods and replies, "With me, it's like that." At bedtime, though, Dad decides it's best to do it the way Mom does it…mostly. This book about a universal theme, translated from French, is set amid familiar home settings, offering actions and details sure to capture preschoolers' interest. As bedtime arrives, the energetic images are toned down with darkened colors, suggesting the calm of nighttime. The one-dimensional characters effectively present a rambunctious little girl and an accommodating dad. His unshaven face and neck give him a scruffy appearance, but it's obvious he's a loving father, even if he is a total newbie to his child's established routine. VERDICT A lively picture book recognizing the value of unique parental styles. An additional purchase for most collections.—Gaye Hinchliff, King County Library System, WA

With Dad, It's Like That written by Nadine Brun-Cosme and illustrated by Magali Le Huche emphasizes the importance of the father-daughter bond. The message is clear and well delivered, and the illustrations are detailed and engaging. It may not appeal to many as a book to be read again and again, but it is still a sweet story. Just in time for Father's day, this book would be perfect for Fathers to share with daughters, especially on a father-daughter night in.
Thank you to Albert Whitman & Company for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
