Oh, Daddy!

Bob Shea, Author, Bob Shea, Illustrator . HarperCollins/Balzer & Bray $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-173080-1

“I don't know what my daddy would do without me,” admits a little blue hippo. When his father, wearing oven mitts on his hands and underwear on his head, asks, “Is this how you get dressed?” the child exclaims, “Oh, Daddy!” and demonstrates how to put on practical clothes. When his father squeezes through the car window, the child teaches him to use the door. Shea pictures the stocky, tumbling hippos with kidney-bean heads and sets them in simple, sunny digital collages. His amiable pair accomplishes necessary tasks and goof around, too—busy parents will want to try this formula of patience plus humor. Ages 3–6. (May)
