Things To Do With Dad - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Candlewick Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

A morning of fun with Dad takes a turn for the boring when a long to-do list interferes. At first content to let Dad cross things off his list, the boy in the story soon realizes that the whole day will be spent on chores — unless he can come up with a solution. In his singularly expressive, kid-friendly style, author-illustrator Sam Zuppardi crafts a colorful celebration of the fun that can be had with just a little imagination — and a trusty green crayon.

Can a young boy figure out how to turn an obstacle into an opportunity in this nearly wordless picture book?
My Review:

A hardcover book with very few words, Things To Do With Dad is illustrated with a boy and his father.  The lad wants his dad's attention but the father is busy with work and chores.  The boy becomes sad so he makes a list of how the two can do the chores together in a fun and imaginative way.  For instance, the task of making the beds turns into sailing a pirate ship.  They both realize that they can do chores and tasks together, in a fun manner.

Father's Day has come and gone for this year but that doesn't mean we shouldn't recognize dads every day.  This book shows ways that a father and his son can bond together by letting loose and using their imaginations.

Win It!

One person will win a hardcover book copy of Things To Do With Dad.
