Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-On his father's special day, a youngster announces that he is going to do all the "Dad" stuff so that the man can rest and relax. The boy's valiant attempts to pour milk on his cereal and take out the garbage end in minor disasters. As Dad cleans up one mess, his son is inadvertently, but happily, creating another. As the day wears on, the child realizes that he still has some things to learn, but there is one "Dad" thing he can do just as well: "Smoooooooooch-a-roo!" The simple text (one or two sentences per page) moves along swiftly from one well-intentioned action to the next. The exuberance and satisfaction of the young helper are energetically illustrated in vibrant colors on each page. The patient father's facial expressions range from surprise to exhaustion to pure love. This tender story would make a wonderful addition to any storytime with a father/child theme.-Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Good-intentioned mayhem follows in the wake of a little boy's attempt to make his father's day a special one. Plourde keeps the action flowing and the text simple: "Dad, aren't you glad I'm such a good house painter?" Alert: Tell young readers they are not to attempt these stunts in their own homes, like taking out the trash (tearing the bag), washing the dog in the bathtub (flooding the bathroom), pouring the milk in the cereal (flooding the kitchen) and, indeed, painting the outside of the house. Wummer's illustrations clearly render fiasco leading to fiasco (deftly offering the counterpoint to the boy's stated goals), Dad getting more droopy-eyed, even the dawning in the little boy that this may not have been his father's easiest day. No surprises in this old tale of a helping hand run amuck, but quick fun, and just brimming with bad ideas ready for insertion in kids' melons. (Picture book. 3-5)
