First sentence: This is Daddy. Today I'm Daddy-sitting.
Premise/plot: A little girl spends a LOVELY day with her Dad.
I loved the relationship between parent and child. It was loving, sweet, tender.
I loved the celebration of the ordinary. This book celebrates the joys of daily family life--mess and all.
I loved reading between the lines. The text tells a definite story. But the illustrations hint at MORE. The narrative shows HER perspective of the day. The illustrations perhaps comes closer to an objective account.
I loved how full of life, full of action, full of IMAGINATION this one is.
I loved how relatable it is.
Also how quotable!
Daddy is very smart. I tell him he can do anything when he grows up. He could be a lion tamer or an astronaut. He could be a famous chocolate maker, or a detective on the case of the missing chocolates...or a nurse treating children who have eaten too much chocolate.It's just a joy to read.
