My Dad Is the Best Playground

Luciana Navarro Powell. Random/Corey, $7.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-307-93090-3
In warm, cozily textured spreads, an attentive father serves as a virtual playground for his pajama-clad son and daughter. Forming an arch on the carpet floor, he’s “the longest tunnel I’ve ever crawled through” and when he swings them by their hands, it’s “as merry as a merry-go-round.” Swooshes of motion, like a jet’s contrail, emphasize action and movement, and the pastel palette exudes a homey quality that works in both the most active scenes and in the eventual wind-down to bedtime. Up to age 3. (May)
