Opening with circle time in an early childhood classroom, we find that while many children have parents who are gardeners, veterinarians, marine biologists, one child's dad is sometimeswait! Did she really say he was a tree? Yes, and a dog and a triangle and a bridge too. Each revelation of a new yoga asana (pose) that Dad can do is followed by simple, straightforward instructions for attaining that pose. Most are well-known hatha yoga poses. The "airplane" appears to be a modified version of a more traditional asana, possibly a "toppling tree." The humor in this book lies in the stretches of imagination we must make between, say, Emmie's daddy being a farmer, and "Sometimes, my daddy's a plow." The turn of the page rewards such imagining with a spread showing the asana (verso), and the steps to get a reader there (recto). A loving humor likewise infuses the bright illustrations in a scene in which the narrator declares that her mommy's a baker, thereby earning the book its inviting title. The author's introduction seems wordy and gets in the way. A final spread with all the asanas in the book, plus tips for young yogis, constitute useful and interesting back matter. 2005, Barefoot Books, Ages 4 to 8.
