Just Like Daddy . . .
By oVi Nedelcu
Just Like Daddy is a vividly illustrated, ironically funny picture book that paints a portrait of how the day unfolds for a little boy and his daddy. In this read-aloud— fitting for ages 3 to 7 — the toddler bubbles with joy as he tackles each new challenge, while the dad faces his day with a more grown-up combination of perseverance and resignation. The book reveals the boy’s perception of being a grown up is quite different than the reality.
Spreads alternate between perspectives. As the little boy merrily whizzes around in his toy car, the father contends with traffic. Despite the father's realistic yet uninspired outlook, he finds himself invigorated by his son's openhearted optimism. In its unvarnished yet loving acceptance of the travails of being a working parent, Just Like Daddy is a perfect Father's Day gift for today's dads.
