Blue-Ribbon Dad

Beth Raisner Glass, illus. by Margie Moore. Abrams, $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8109-9727-1
A young squirrel hustles to get a surprise ready before his father comes home. While working on an arts-and-crafts project that necessitates glue, glitter, sequins, stickers, and more, the squirrel reflects on everything his father does for him. "He always packs my favorite lunch,/ Then drives me right to school./ On Saturdays he stays to watch/ My lessons at the pool." Moore's delicately outlined watercolors mirror the coziness of the text. The squirrel's father is delighted, of course, with the blue ribbon he receives upon his return; readers don't have to go through nearly as much effort: a punch-out paper ribbon is included. Ages 3–7. (May)
