Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Father's Day is just around the corner, so Sarah and James are making a special present for their dad. Dad is puzzled, since he can't seem to locate tools and items that he needs to complete his Saturday chores. In this Lift the Flap book, "Sarah and James find just what they are looking for, but Dad did not." the children are on one side of the flap, locating what they are looking for, and Dad is on the other, looking puzzled. On Father's Day morning, Dad has a very large present to open. Sarah and James have wrapped themselves up in a big box with tubs and garden tools, all hung with tags telling Dad he gets a "free dog bath," "free gardening," etc. The drawings are bright and filled with family details. This lift the flap book will appeal to preschoolers. On several of the opening pages, the flaps on the left side of the spread were not as easy to manipulate as those on the right page. 2000, Little Simon/Simon&Schuster, Ages 3 to 5, $5.99.

    Hilarious Use of Flaps for the 2-4 Year Old Set

    This book is built around a running gag while two children, James and Sarah, put together a surprise Father's Day present on the day before the grand event. The children decide to collect tokens of ways they can help their father. The only trouble is that they take these tokens away . . . just as their father is about to use the items. As a result, the house and yard are filled with unexpected messes and there's a puzzled father. The pages show the father about to use the hose, tub, trowel, window cleaner, or charcoal . . . and under the flaps a different illustration shows the father taking a pratfall or having an accident when the item disappears or is replaced by something inappropriate (like a dog's stick for a trowel). On Father's Day, dad opens the door to the parent's bedroom to find a large box in the hallway with a sign on it that says, 'For Daddy, open me right away!' Inside the box are Sarah and James. Also inside are a trowel (with a sign attached that says 'free garden weeding'), a hose (with a sign that says 'free car wash'), a tub ('free doggy bath'), a bottle of window cleaner ('free window washing'), and charcoal ('free help with barbecue'). The mystery is solved. 'Daddy said, 'I love all your presents, but most of all, I love you!'' You will enjoy the bright, solid colors portraying simple images of happy situations. Although the book is very funny, the children are certainly not very considerate or helpful. They don't ask permission, and they can tell that their removals and replacements will cause problems. As a result, the children waste a lot of their father's time. Fortunately, these acts affect his love for them not one bit! I think the book could have been written to overcome this limitation of seeming to promote mischevious behavior (as long as it is in a good cause) and still be very funny. So I graded the book down one star accordingly. Appreciating your father doesn't have to begin and end on Father's Day. How can you be helpful to your father on other days as well? Happy Father's Day! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution
