This joyful story celebrates dad as the most fun in the world and the best playground ever! He's the highest swing and a great climbing wall, he's a bouncing trampoline and merry as a merry-go-round. And then, when playtime is over, dad is the best for reading and snuggling with before bed.
Luciana Navarro Powell's spirited text is perfectly paired with her colorful, energetic and very humorous artwork. Dads and their kids will love reading and re-reading this glorious celebration of fathers.
In warm, cozily textured spreads, an attentive father serves as a virtual playground for his pajama-clad son and daughter. Forming an arch on the carpet floor, he's "the longest tunnel I've ever crawled through" and when he swings them by their hands, it's "as merry as a merry-go-round." Swooshes of motion, like a jet's contrail, emphasize action and movement, and the pastel palette exudes a homey quality that works in both the most active scenes and in the eventual wind-down to bedtime. Up to age 3.
