Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug


Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug. J.D. Lester. Illustrated by Hiroe Nakata. 2010. Random House. 26 pages.

Daddy calls me Doodlebug...it's time to play! Yippeee!!

What you see is what you get...this little board book celebrates fatherhood. The language is very playful, very imaginative.

For example,
Daddy calls me Goo-and-Go...we make some mucky messes.
and
Daddy calls me Mini-Me...we're swinging right along!
Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug would be a nice companion to Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants.

I really enjoyed the illustrations by Hiroe Nakata.
