Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Hines's simple pictures and easygoing text capture all three characters' personalities, as well as the warmth of Corey's home." Kirkus Reviews
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Daddy picks Corey up from the daycare center, takes him grocery shopping and then home to cook a delicious spaghetti dinner. After dinner, Corey helps Mommy wash the dishes while Daddy turns into . . . Bathman! . . . and carries Corey off for a fun-filled bath. There's a time for a story and kisses all around before Corey hits the sheets. Simple, realistic pictures illustrate this warm celebration of family life. Hines clearly realizes the value to preschool readers of ordinary, everyday events: Corey's daily routine is comfortingly familiar. The author also knows the specialness of a playful daddy who is willing to be silly with his child. This light-hearted, happy book is of special appeal to children in Corey's situation, whose parents both work. (3-6)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 Corey is a child in an ideal family. After his father picks him up at the day-care center, they shop for dinner and prepare supper. Spaghetti is piping hot when Mom arrives from her job. Then Daddy gets Corey ready for bed, and the happy threesome share a picture book and kisses. For many adults the story probably verges on fantasy, but preschoolers will find the tale reassuring. In fact, they will probably wish their own fathers would don shower cap and towel to turn into Bathman or use pajama feet for dog ears. The pictures, predominately in shades of pink, yellow and blue, are as soothing as the text, and the uncluttered rooms and spotless clothes contribute to an idealized vision of family life that many may desire but few achieve. Kathy Piehl, Mankato State Univ . , Minn.
