Overview

The Little Big Book for Dads, Welcome's companion to the best-selling The Little Big Book for Moms, is back in an updated edition featuring a fresh cover design, a revised introduction and a new ISBN. This classic is a treasure trove piled high with stories, fairy tales, poetry, activities, recipes, and songs - all selected with the dad in mind. Featuring text by authors as diverse, funny, and profound as Bill Cosby, Shel Silverstein, Ogden Nash, and Dr. Seuss, and illustrated throughout with early twentieth-century art from artists including Jessie Wilcox Smith and Kate Greenway, The Little Big Book for Dads makes for a special reading experience to be shared between dad and a little one. Filled with activities to while away the hours together, including making sandcastles and identification games; jokes, riddles, and great tongue twisters to laugh over; and even some fun stuff to try in the kitchen with the kids, like mac and cheese, sloppy joes, and chicken fingers. All in all, it's a book dads -and kids, too- will love and appreciate.

"One of those 'must have' books...The endearing artwork recalls a bygone era when bonding with Dad was as simple as flying a kite."

This was a favorite for both my son and daughter, and is a good way to get dads involved. It has recipes, songs, things to create, as well as traditional nursery rhymes and newer stories like Shel Silverstein. I buy it for all my friends' baby showers to get the dad involved too, since so much of it is for the mom and baby.
