    Gentle Humor About Children Emulating Daddy

    This book will be most appealing to 2-4 year olds. Although it seems to portray a boy and his father, my younger daughter emulated me at those ages just as much as my sons did. This book describes her behavior just as well as it does the boys' emulations. The book opens with images of big shoes that are not filled. The symbolism is obvious and rewarding. The book features three bears, a Daddy and Mommy bear and a young bear. The book has a series of lines about what the young bear does, each of which ends with a refrain 'Just like Daddy.' 'When I got up this morning I yawned a big yawn . . . ' 'Just like Daddy.' 'I washed my face, got doressed, and had a big breakfast . . .' 'Then I put on my coat and my boots . . .' 'I picked a flower and gave it to my mother . . .' ' . . . I put a big worm on my hook . . .' Then the last line is: 'I caught a big fish . . .' and you see a big fish being held by another hand on the side. And the finish is: ' . . . Just Like Mommy!' Mommy has caught a big fish, too, while Daddy has a minnow. In the final scene, each bear is cooking her or his own fish in a separate frying pan over a campfire. The illustrations are unusually large, clear, and simple. This complements the book's simple humor. It is that combination that pegs this book for 2-4 year olds. The book can be a good basic reader, as well, for 3-5 year olds. On the other hand, if you child loves it at 6, that's great, too! After you finish this story, think about how other people emulate you. What can you do to make that process easier and more successful for those doing the emulating? Follow the best role model . . . always! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution
