Because I Am Your Daddy

Sherry North, Author, Marcellus Hall, Illustrator , illus. by Marcellus Hall. Abrams $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8109-8392-2

From the creators of Because You Are My Baby comes another ingenuous expression of love, with a father explaining that he'd do anything for his daughter. Hall's airy, retro-flavored watercolors depict the father's artfully exaggerated roles: “If I were a scientist, we would dig up ancient bones/ And find the biggest dinosaur the world has ever known.” Other activities include surfing an inky blue wave and enjoying a game of “cosmic bowling” aboard a spaceship. A stylish depiction of fatherly devotion. Ages 3–8. (May)
