Daddy is a Cozy Hug. Rhonda Gowler Greene. Illustrated by Maggie Smith. 2010. May 2010. Walker & Company. 32 pages.
Daddy is a fish with fins when summer heats the air. We splish and splash in crashing waves--a wiggling, wriggling pair.Daddy is a Cozy Hug is the perfect companion to Mommy Is a Soft, Warm Kiss. It's a sweet celebration of fatherhood. It celebrates the ordinary moments of life, of parenthood, of family life--through each season of the year. One of my favorite lines?
Daddy is a tap-tap hammer, building things with me. We work tap-tap and make a house for birdies in our tree.
Daddy is a sneaky fox when playing hide and seek.The story is told through rhyme, but it's good rhyme so it works well! I also liked the illustrations. I thought they worked well with the text.
He makes himself so hard to find...I sometimes have to peek.
