We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Publisher Description:
Daddies do so many terrific things. A daddy always gives you the best seat at the parade, he reads you bedtime stories, and he tries his best to fix your toys when they break (even if he doesn't always succeed). Filled with soft, beautiful watercolor artwork and lilting text, this lift-the-flap book about all the great things fathers do is perfect for young children.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1999 August)
PreS-K-Parental roles are celebrated in these lift-the-flap books. Cartoon illustrations of multihued parents and children accompany simple statements such as those in the titles. Occasionally, thoughts are continued in text found beneath the flaps. The roles as described here are traditional ones. Daddies tease and play, offer a bit of comfort, and go to work. Mommies do a lot of caregiving, cook breakfast, and remind children of their manners. None of these women are shown working outside of the home and a picture of children getting off of the school bus is paired with, "A mommy waits for you to come home." These books are not as charming as many of Ziefert's other titles or as effective as Laura Numeroff's What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best (S & S, 1998). Flap appeal aside, this is well-intentioned literary fluff comforting to those children whose lifestyles match the featured models.-Faith Brautigam, Gail Borden Public Library, Elgin, IL Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
