Me And My Dad!
Me and My Dad!
Little Bear's dad is simply the best! He wakes up his cub with a tickle on the nose and a kiss. Then the two spend a wonderful day together exploring, splashing through rain, and swimming in the river. At the end of the day, they snuggle together under the stars.
A simple rhyming text and big, happy pictures fill up the pages of this father-son lovefest. A bear cub goes through the day with his dad, starting when he gets awakened with a nose tickle and a kiss. Then it's out to explore, have a honey snack ("Watch my dad run when the bees want it back!"), and swim in the river. Children will especially respond to the scenes of Dad holding his cub in a cave as a thunderstorm rages, then the pair dancing between drops as the rain diminishes. Appealing to the best emotions that kids have about their fathers, this will make for a nice sharing experience. Ilene Cooper
