The Little Big Book For Dads
by Lena Tabori and H. Clark Wakabayashi
A book full of: Nursery Rhymes, Activities, Songs, Fairy Tales, Poetry, Essays, Recipes, Tongue Twisters, Jokes.
All the selections are made with a dad, not a mom, in mind. There are outdoor activities and jokes, even tongue twisters and riddles. Kids can learn to juggle with marshmallows, make one-eyed sailors for breakfast, create electricity with balloons and identify insects, birds, leaves, and stars. With text by writers as diverse, as funny, and as profound as Bill Cosby and Gordon Lightfoot, Shel Silverstein and Kenny Loggins, Ogden Nash and Dr. Seuss, and illustrated throughout with early twentieth-century art from artists including Jessie Willcox Smith, Randolph Caldecott, and Kate Greenaway, this 352-page charm of a book is something special and sweet for dad to share with his little ones.
