Instantly a favorite at our house! Describes our fun-loving daddy perfectly! Got it for hubs for father's day, wrote a note inside, and added some little handprints. Brought tears to his eyes, and makes me cry like a baby every time! Mommas who sometimes feel like hubby is an extra child, this book is PERFECT. It will make you love him even more, guaranteed. ;) definitely recommend!!!

This book is a very cute and perfect gift for a dad. I ordered this for my husband for Father's Day and the only reason it got 4 stars and not 5 was because the paper seems a bit cheap and I think the story could have been a little longer. However, this is still a very cute story about how not all dads seem like grown ups because they are just like kids and have fun. Perfect for any 'Man-child' fathers out there :)

I gave this book to my husband for fathers day, but I love reading it too. It reinforces that good dads come in many forms and it is often different from how a mother operates. It might even give reluctant Dads a few ideas on how to interact with their kids!

I don't think I've ever written an Amazon review but I had to since I am flabbergasted there is only one review for this book. If you are or know a dad who is a kid at heart you must get them to read this book to their kids. Enjoy!

I bought this book as a gift for the daughter of one of my good friends. Of course, because the book is practically *about* him, it's more of a gift for her dad than for her! The story is very cute; it's all about fun-loving dads and the ways they act like kids. There are lots of interesting visual details in the illustrations, and I like that the families are multi-cultural. I would definitely recommend this for young-at-heart fathers and their children alike!

The story is adorable and I am sure so many dads can relate to it. Plus it brought a sentimental tear to his eye when he read it with the children. What a fun gift.

Bought this for my husband and he loved it and stated will be passing it on to our son. So sweet and cute and reminds us so much of him.
