If I Were You

Overview

When Dad tucks Daisy into bed, he says,

“If I were you . . . I’d go to sleep.”

But Daisy doesn’t want to go to sleep. In fact, if she could trade places with him, she’d read her dad a story, dress him in a pink tutu, feed him oatmeal . . . and that’s only the beginning.

Because just wait until you hear what Dad would do!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
There are many children who share Daisy's frustration with a parent who pontificates "If I were you, I'd go to sleep." Daisy is driven to retaliate with her own "woulds" like "'If you were me and I were you,' said Daisy, ‘I'd dress you in a pink tutu! I'd give you oatmeal every day while I had a chocolate fudge sundae.'" Daddy responds by offering all of his jobs to Daisy while he plays. In the end, they both agree they like things the way they are—including ending up with a kiss and cuddle. Babette Cole's picture of Daddy with a five o'clock shadow in a pink tutu is perhaps my favorite example of how the illustrations join in the fun of this "don't want to go to bed story." It is nice to see a story that features a father doing the bedtime duty—and being playful about it. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
Kirkus Reviews
"If I were you, I'd snuggle down and go to sleep." A weary father's timeless suggestion becomes the impetus for this imaginative, rib-tickling tale. While a young girl and her dad ponder what it would be like to exchange places, each glamorizes the other's seemingly idyllic life. Their flights of fancy include Dad eating oatmeal for breakfast while his daughter feasts on a sundae, and her cleaning house while Dad lounges on the couch. Ultimately what they discover is that they love to be together, no matter what their roles. Cole's watercolor illustrations are uproariously funny, including wry details that add to the hilarity of the scenarios envisioned by the duo. Readers will giggle over such silly images as that of a grizzled Dad wearing a pink tutu wedged in his daughter's stroller being steered down Main Street. This funny, warmhearted tale is not to be missed. (Picture book. 4-8)
