Monkeys, elephants and whales all welcome their papas in the board book When Daddy Comes Home: A Lift-the-Flap Book by Lori Ann Grover. "When Daddy Dog runs home," begins the text, as a golden pooch leaps across the spread toward a red doghouse. A lift of the flap reveals his progeny and the text, "his puppy barks!" Thick black lines and solid swathes of color make this a joyful celebration for parent and child. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

There are not a lot of board books that feature daddies, so that is a plus for this one. The minus is that a great number of the dads in the animal kingdom do not have a parental role--it is the moms who raise the young. Therefore a daddy elephant would not stomp home, because he would not even be part of the herd. That is also pretty true of dogs and whales. Human kids are often part of a two parent family. That said, the book does teach a few animal names and when a flap is lifted, kids can mimic the sound that the baby animals make. It is too bad the author did not try and find male animals who really do get involved with raising their young. 2005, Little Simon/Simon & Schuster, Ages 1 to 3.
