Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The original "Families" series was published in 1999; this is part of the newly updated set. This book and others in the series support national social studies standards related to identifying family members and their role in the family. As the text states, a father is a male parent. Some dads do chores around the house, help put their children to bed, do the grocery shopping, fix the car, take a son to the movies, read a book to their offspring, or more. I assume that the publisher used stock photos, but the blatant placement of products such as Capri Sun, Old Navy and Coca-Cola sends a message that may not have been intended. In general, the series appears useful, but certain titles—like this one—could be questionable. At least the book achieves a sense of diversity; it is filled with pictures of kids and parents from various ethnic backgrounds. There is a four-word glossary, references for two recently-published books and a web address for FactHound, a portal to take kids to safe Internet sites. The last page contains an index, the book's word count, and recommended grade level for the book. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
