Published: April 1998

Annotation: This charming book, really two books back-to-back, shows preschoolers that mothers and fathers are equally important and equally special. Five different animal pairs demonstrate the skills that mothers possess--turn the book over and children see fathers doing the same things, in their own way. Children from any kind of family will be able to relate to the familiar domestic scenes portrayed with plenty of whimsy and warmth. Full color.

Publisher Description:
Daddies can do lots of things, like bake you a birthday cake, play with you in the park, and take you trick-or-treating. But what do they do best?

Mommies can do lots of things, like teach you how to ride a bike, sew a loose button on your teddy bear, and read you a cozy bedtime story. But what do they do best? The answer is made perfectly clear in this irresistible celebration of parents and the everyday things they do.
