It’s the Best Day Ever, Dad!

Brooke Shields, , illus. by Cori Doerrfeld. . HarperCollins, $17.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-06-172445-9

The family from Welcome to Your World, Baby return in a similarly cheerful companion book. The two sisters (the younger one is now a toddler) spend an active day with their dad cavorting in the park with their dog, playing hopscotch and having a tea party. Self-assured older sister Frankie narrates: “When Violet goes down for a nap (she still naps, but I don’t have to anymore), Dad and I sit on the couch and watch basketball.” The plot is light, but readers should appreciate the feel-good message. Ages 3–8. (May)
