Amazon.com Review

What a happy, happy place the world would be if daddies always did all the things they do best: bake you a magnificent birthday cake, give you a piggyback ride, hold you when you're feeling sad. In Laura Joffe Numeroff (If You Give a Mouse a Cookie) and Lynn Munsinger's picture book world, they do indeed! Munsinger's adorable (but not cutesy) watercolors depict a hippo papa, fox father, bunny daddy, and more top pops, giving their little ones "lots and lots of love." Terrific detail and brief text ("Daddies can help you make a garden grow") create just the right mix in this reassuring bedtime read aloud. In one spread, the goat dad offers his daughter cough syrup and a teddy bear as she hunkers down in her tissue-strewn sickbed; in another, a bunny's father helps her blow-dry the family dog after a bath. Mommy feeling left out? Numeroff and Munsinger sing her praises, too, in What Mommies Do Best. Cuddly enjoyment for the whole family! (Ages 2 to 6) --Emilie Coulter

Format: Hardcover
My son loves this book. It is adorable - the words and the pictures alike! We read it over and over, and it is one of the few children's books that I don't mind to hear 20 times in a row. It talks about cute things that parents "do best!" Sweet and charming!

Love the book! LOVE the pictures! Our daughter enjoys reading the book with us and points out the items that her daddy does and doesn't do. Truly enjoy that items aren't geared toward a stereotypical view of what a daddy might do.

This is such a sweet book that I can't wait to have read to my child. I bought this as a Father's Day present for my husband. I like that it doesn't fall in to any gender stereotypes. It shows that Daddies can do all sorts of things for their little one.

This series: "What Mommies/Daddies, Grandmas/Grandpas Do Best" are very popular with our grandchildren. Children between ages 2 and 6 love these books. You can talk about the clever pictures. They always request this book at bedtime and I often purchase the Grandma/Grandpa book as a gift for new grandparents. I purchased the mini Daddy single book for a father-to-be.
