Daddy Is a Doodlebug by Bruce Degen

What do doodlebugs do together...

Daddy and his doodlebug doodle the things that doodlebugs like to do. They snack on potoodle chips while walking through the zoo, ride the caboodle car on the train, and padoodle their canoe through the sun and the rain. And at night when it's time to turn out the light, they say, "Don't let the bedboodles bite!" Because that's what doodlebugs do!

For some fathers, it is easy for forget that young children will model themselves on their parents. One of the best ways to have that reminder be a pleasant spur to being a better role model is to read this book. In this tongue-twisting, extra-arm-and-leg sporting tribute to fathers, you'll get lots of laughter and bonding. I recommend this book as a gift from a child for father's day. Doodlebugs have four arms and hands. As a result, they can do a lot more than you or I can. Here are some examples of the wordplay: You will hear about 'soup-and-noodle bugs' and 'apple strudel bugs.' To do this, you have to go to 'Mayfly's Diner.' At the zoo, they eat 'potoodle chips' because Daddy is a 'foodlebug.' They can walk their 'poodlebug' which has 6 legs and paws. Outdoors, they 'padoodle' their canoe. Also, they go for 'bugoodle rides' in the park. Looking for fireflies after dark, they play 'hoodle and seek bug.' You will also learn about 'tagoodlebug,' 'fairytoodles,' 'Goldiebug,' 'Robin Hoodlebug,' 'storyoodlebug,' and 'bedboodles.' As you can see, the reading here will make Peter Piper picking his peck of pickled peppers seem like a snap. A good way to enjoy this book is to make up your own language and pretend that you and your child are different kinds of creatures that you both find to be fun. You may soon have a fiction author emerging from your word play! Take off from where you are to more humorous and happy realms together with your child!
