What's Just Like Daddy About

Publisher Summary

A vivdly illustrated day in the life of a little boy and his daddy, this charming picture book paints a gently ironic comparison of how the day unfolds for each of them.

 The toddler is filled with glee as he tackles each new challenge, while the dad faces his day with a a more grown-up combination of perseverance and resignation--yet he finds himself inspired by his son's open-hearted optimism. Spreads alternate between perspectives--the little boy's excitement at driving his toy car around compared with his father trying to navigate traffic, for example. The tension is resolved by a transcendent final spread that shows what makes it all worthwhile. 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.

This is such a cute book. Clever how the pages about the little boy, boldly colorful and with font sizes varying to show emphasis, and the pages about the Daddy, in a more reserved color palette, tending toward browns/grays, alternate, heightening the contrast. I love that daddy’s most colorful and fun spread shows him spending time with his family.
