Capucilli, Alyssa Satin. 2009. My Dad and Me. Illustrated by Susan Mitchell. Simon & Schuster.
It's a celebration of fatherhood and the seasons...multicultural style. In addition to good old dad, kids will learn: papi (Spanish), Aba (Hebrew), Baba (Mandarin), Bapa (Hindi). Here's a sample of how the text unfolds (quite literally, I may add as the pages do unfold):
When it's only my dad and me...The text is simple and the illustrations quite sweet.
we rake the leaves high.
We leap in and they fly.
We climb trees and say,
"It's a great autum day!"
When it's only my dad and me.
