Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-It's Father's Day and four-year-old Susie wants to make it the best one ever for her dad, so she plans to do all of his favorite things, including lunch at a fast food restuarant, playing on the monkey bars, and riding the merry-go-round. When they arrive home after a busy afternoon, Susie announces that it has been a perfet day, and her dad agrees. Read by a young girl and an adult male, the clear, word-for-word narration of this Eve Bunting tale (HM, pap. 1993) aptly conveys the precocious innocence of Susie and the gentle patience of her father. Upbeat background music, reminiscent of a summer's day, quietly accompanies the story and allows time for page turns. The lively narration enhances Susan Meddaugh's illustrations and completes the feeling of love shared by a father and his daughter on a very special day of the year.

Review

"It's Father's Day, and four-year-old Susie has planned a perfect outing with all the things she knows her dad will like the best. . . . Bunting's simple, witty text sketches a warm father-daughter relationship and affectionately glances at the four-year-old mind at work. Meddaugh's bright watercolors and pencil illustrations add to the humor as they show the two enjoying the day but with clearly differing levels of energy and points of view." Booklist, ALA

"Clearly the perfect Father's Day requires the perfect father, and Susie's parent quite literally takes the cake. Meddaugh's balloon-colored cartoons are perfectly tuned to the spirit of the day. With more spontaneity than most made-to-order picture books, this is an engaging family portrait and a winning tribute to 'Dad.'" School Library Journal

I gave this book to my father for father's day. It tells the charming story of a young girl and the relationship she has with her father. She wants to spend Father's Day with her Dad doing all the things he loves. Instead they do the things she loves to do and like every good Dad he goes along and pretends they are his favorite things too. It seems like he's thinking, "without her I wouldn't be celebrating this day". Any father would love to read this book to his child and cherish it as a gift.

Since I was a young girl, my father read this to me every year on Father's Day. It was our favorite book, especially since I could empathize with the daughter's innocent self-centered demeanor. Once I could read, I would read it to him every Father's Day. It became a tradition that lasted many, many years. I'm 23 now and out on my own, but I still have this tucked away in my bookshelf. A Perfect Father's Day will always have a special place in my heart.

I love this book! I always check books out of the library first to see if they meet my criteria for reading to my 4 y o daughter, and very few of them I end up buying- this one I will be buying. A spunky girl in shorts and a t-shirt plans and executes a day-long outdoor active adventure. The illustrations are hilarious - you can read the mind of the cat and the dad, who are peacefully relaxing until the energetic child arrives. I love how the dad acts in this book- very patient and loving, just BEING with his daughter, and I love his floral shirt! It just doesn't get any better than this. Thank you Eve Bunting and Susan Meddaugh!

Such a fun book for Father's Day that my kids enjoyed reading with their dad! As parents, we also found it amusing because it perfectly describes our 6-year old daughter and "her" idea of the perfect Father's Day.

I gave this to my hubby (from my daughter) for his first dad's day. He loved it. Its a great story. But i think it would be a better gift from a 3yr old child or older. He's saved it to read with her later.

This is a really cute book and would be a good book for a small child or an older child as well to share with their father. It's a nice activity for a child to read it to their dad on father's day. It's just a really good book. The characters in this book are adorable.
