My Dad and Me

Alyssa Satin Capucilli, , illus. by Susan Mitchell. . S&S/Little Simon, $7.99 (16pp) ISBN 978-1-4169-5828-4

Each page of this gentle book features a different child and father spending time together throughout the seasons: “When it's only my dad and me... we rake the leaves high.” Panels fold out twice to reveal more activities (like jumping in said leaves). Throughout, readers learn other words for “dad”: “When it's only my aba and me... we take morning hikes” (a note reads, “Aba means 'dad' in Hebrew”). The multicultural component should broaden the book's appeal. My Mom and Me is also available. Ages 4–6. (Apr.)
