Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a daddy. Here, Greene shows a man spending time with his son through all four seasons. They camp, rake leaves, walk in the snow, and fly kites. Although the months are not named, there is a spread for each one. The rhyming and metered text is simple with only one couplet per page, and the poetry flows naturally. The words cross the illustrations in wavy, large-print type that leads the eye from page to page. Both the text and illustrations give a sense of cheerfulness and warmth in the child's suburban neighborhood. Smith adds enough detail to the watercolor and acrylic scenes to make them active and interesting. Tim Warnes's Daddy Hug (HarperCollins, 2008) addresses the same topic through loving animal fathers.—Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT
