KIRKUS REVIEW

A playful and loving father and son spend a delightful day bonding together, from a wake-up nose tickle to a final nighttime cuddle. Narrated by the son, the gentle rhyming text highlights the best parts of the day for him . . . and the best traits of his dad. “We race to the river / and Dad jumps straight in. / I climb on his back / and we go for a swim.” The two dodge raindrops, search for hidden wonders, find honey, hide from a thunderstorm and tell stories. Throughout, it’s obvious that Dad is a hero to his son for his strength, dependability, knowledge of forest secrets and for the security and fun that he brings to his child’s life. Edgson’s full-bleed illustrations render the father and son duo as cuddly Teddy bear–like figures with wonderfully expressive faces. She perfectly captures the energy, exuberance and joy of the bears as they spend their day together. More and more titles are emerging that celebrate the special bond between fathers and their children; this one adds beautifully to that genre. (Picture book. 3-7)
