Won't Papa Be Surprised!
Anne F. Rockwell, Terri Cohlene. HarperCollins, $15.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-688-13093-0
Everything reminds Mikele of ribbons as she goes through the day doing chores alongside her father, and no wonder-she's prepared a blue ribbon (which says ""My Papa"") for a Father's Day gift in Won't Papa Be Surprised! by Terri Cohlene, illus. by Elizabeth Sayles. The layered pastels of the illustrations create movement in the garden where the pair weeds and in the windsock suspended above the porch.
