Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1--Through colorful photographs and simple text, Rotner and Kelly celebrate fatherhood in this companion to Lots of Moms (Dial, 1996). Dads are shown in their many roles--as playmate, worker, teacher, and helper. The book points out the simple things they do--wash dishes, change a tire, run errands, work on the car, etc. Fathers and children of many races, ages, and sizes lend diversity. Beginning readers will appreciate the easy text with many repetitive words and picture clues. Children can also use the marvelous photographs to create stories of their own. Overall, this book has great visual images and some hidden riches to be brought out by adults sharing it one-on-one or with a group.--Jean-Marie Kliphuis, Nesconset Elementary School, NY
