This is a great testament to daddies everywhere and a wonderful choice for preschool story times with a daddy theme. It's great that mom takes a back seat in this one - she's still in the picture, but this one does a great job of showing the warm and silly times that dads and kids can share. A HUGE daddy sized recommend for this one. Don't miss it.
Daddy would look at his watch as he and Mama stood by the car waiting to head to Grandma's. Little hippo was dawdling around after he wrote all over the sidewalk and played a little hopscotch. Daddy wiggled himself into the side of the car window with only his behind hanging out. Looked like Daddy was doing to have to be shown the proper way to get into a car. "Come on, Daddy!" Daddy's can be so silly. Getting into a car was "easy peasy, mac and cheesy!" Little hippo had his work cut out for him at times. He had to show Daddy how to eat carrots, water the flowers, AND how to give big hugs. It was hard work showing Daddy how to do things the right way!
This marvelously charming book shows just how special Daddys really are . . . and shows just how hard it is to "train" them. I loved the little "reverse psychology" twist this book so humorously brought out, especially when Daddy was trying to get his son in the car. The father/son love is captured perfectly in the artwork. We can see how Daddy is worried about getting his son to cooperate, but get a good chuckle when we see his wheels churn and he finds a solution to the problem. This is one of those delightfully funny books that your little ones are going to ask you to read to them time and time again!
The book describes how we are convincing our kids to do stuff, like get in the car, getting dressed or eat vegetables. Some dads choose the silly, funny way, like putting on their clothes the wrong way or hopping in the car backwards.
The illustrations are simple and colorful.
This book really made us giggle and inspired us to be a little bit more silly sometimes.
If you're reading this, you are curious about this book. I am happy to report that this book is wonderful.
My daughter and I read it regularly for a couple of years at bedtime. She loved it, and loved to join in the fun with her own chorus of "Daddy!"
Highly recommended for anyone with a kid or a daddy in their life.
The story is simple and the pictures are cute and our boy can't stop laughing at the shenanigans of the daddy. He especially loves when they say that they are watering the flowers, but they are are actually spraying water at each other. Well done Mr. Shea, a fun entertaining read for kids and it even got me chuckling through out as well.

One of our favorites to read with the baby, just wish it was a bit smaller in size as it can be very hard to hold the babe and read the book.Published 23 months ago by blondefae

My son and I are big fans of Bob Shea's books. My son enjoys the illustrations and the fun story of a kid teaching his daddy things. It's a very sweet story.Published on June 5, 2013 by Chandlee Style
