DADDY ALL DAY LONG by Francesca Rusackas

DADDY ALL DAY LONG

Age Range: 4 - 6

KIRKUS REVIEW

In this equally gooey sequel to I Love You All Day Long (2002), little Owen turns to his other parent for a numerical game of “I love you this much . . . Well, I love you this much.” Burris portrays a pair of chubby, dressed pigs sporting big smiles and playing together in a comfortably suburban setting, from breakfast’s “I love you more than two pancakes with bananas on top,” to “ONE MILLION ZILLION” bedtime kisses. Unlike Sam McBratney’s Guess How Much I Love You (1995) that started it all, this contest ends in a tie, and its rotund characters do reflect recent reports of how Americans are porking up—but it’s still likely to be lost amid the current barrage of similarly themed episodes. (Picture book. 4-6)
