Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Dads are not ordinary, so dads in every imaginable form—bear, alligator, frog, duck; even elephant, pig, or giraffe—express their love in non-ordinary ways. They may produce breakfast pancakes from scratch, or help their child learn to keep their balance on a two-wheel bike. They might read your favorite story over and over and over again, or answer all your "why" questions. The bottom line, shown by all these animal dads, is the implication that human dads might be equally as inarticulate in their expressions of love. (Isn't it always Mom who sends kids off with, "Be good, honey, I love, you!") What the heck, who needs sloppy words? Just keep bringing on more pancakes, please! Jennifer Bell illustrates greeting cards as well as children's books, so her digitally finished pencil sketches are full of the very schmaltzy warmth that guys may not have, but warm the cockles of little ones' hearts. The end result will make for excellent bedtime reading. Reviewer: Kathleen Karr
