As these books prove, Dad knows best—except when kids know even better.

The Fathers Are Coming Home Margaret Wise Brown , illus. by Stephen Savage. S&S/McElderry , $16.99 (32p) $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-689-83345-8

Brown's simple text and Savage's superb linocuts combine to reassure youngest readers of their fathers' love. Each page focuses on a different creature—“The fish father swims home to his little fish that live in the gurgling brook.” The illustrations convey emotion through deft line work and subtle changes in color and texture. Savage's joyful cover is duplicated on the satisfying last page when a boy's father “comes home from the sea. Home to his little boy.” Ages 2–5. (Apr.)
