My Dad and Me

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...
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.
The text is simple and the illustrations quite sweet.
