Daddies of all kinds find ways to share their time with their children. Some fathers play games and share songs with their children, while others, like raccoon fathers, help their children to prepare their dinner. Other fathers, like father cats, give their children a bath. Many human daddies give their children funny and loving nicknames as they spend time together. Can you image what a father hedgehog might call his son or daughter? What would a father penguin call his chick as they slide across the ice together?

This charming board book, written in rhyming couplets and accompanied by delightful watercolor illustrations, is the perfect book for children and fathers to share.
