DADDY AND I... by Eloise Greenfield

DADDY AND I...

Age Range: 1 - 6

KIRKUS REVIEW

 The best of four board books by a Coretta Scott King Award team. The small boy who narrates describes a happy day helping Daddy--laundry, cleaning, etc.--varied with a ball game, a book, and an affectionate hug. Poet Greenfield's language is straightforward but graceful; Gilchrist's illustrations are a little clumsy here, but do convey the pair's warmth and sense of purpose. Of the other titles, I Make Music has the strongest text; Big Friend, Little Friend is an adequate concept book; and My Doll, Keshia suggests a parenting role model. None of these is ideal--all are slight and undemanding; still, they meet a real need for simple books about African-Americans. (Picture book. 1- 6)
