This book is alot of fun. I bought it for my grandchildren ages 10-1 yr. (all 9 of them.) It would be a great book for Father's day because it shows a great father - son relationship. It flows well and is by one of my favorite authors. I love Jane Yolen's other books. My grandchildren all enjoyed it...especially when their dad's read it to them. I only wish that she would have included all the different names for 'blue' because I can only think of five. The illustrations are colorful and so cute. The book is also a good length for young children, and the older ones could even read it to the younger ones.

This is truly a beautiful book.  It tells the story of what a father does, which is, among many things, to teach.  Ms. Nolan so beautiful illustrates with her words (and with the humerous pictures of Ms. Jorisch) how much fathers give to their children just in the course of spending time with them.  This is a wonderful book for parents to read to their children!

I bought this book nearly four years ago for our first Father's Day. To be honest, it didn't "catch" with me immediately, but  has since become a favorite! At first, it seemed the flow was a bit off, but it smoothed out by the dozenth repetition. We like to add sounds to many of the paqes, for example each bird/dog/fish sounds a little different, we sing the word "blue" in scale and add tickle stings for the bitey bugs. It can be a very interactive book that kids can really get into. And of course, it is a great display of father/child bonds.

I bought this for my son-in-law as he and my daughter expect their first child and my first grandchild! I thought the illustrations were bright and the story fun for kids and adults too.
