My Dad Is the Best Playground
In warm, cozily textured spreads, an attentive father serves as a virtual playground for his pajama-clad son and daughter. Forming an arch on the carpet floor, he's the longest tunnel they've ever crawled through - and when he swings them by their hands, it's "as merry as a merry-go-round." Swooshes of motion, like a jet's contrail, emphasize action and movement, and the pastel palette exudes a homey quality that works in both the most active scenes and the eventual wind-down to bedtime.

A day at the park. A ride on Daddy's back. Run, Daddy! Faster! Faster! How fast can Daddy go? Faster than a dog? A horse? How about a cheetah? Must his feet even touch the ground? Leslie Patricelli reprises the duo from Higher! Higher! in another humorous riff on a favorite pastime - a laugh-out-loud-funny tale of few words about doting dads and high-energy kids whose imaginations know no bounds.

Giddy-Up, Daddy! is the newest imaginative picture book from celebrated cartoonist Troy Cummings. When rootin'-tootin' Daddy the "horse" is eyeballed by some rotten rustlers, it's all the kids can do to keep him out of the big lugs' lasso. What follows is a quick detour through a rodeo, a trip across a circus high wire, and a near-miss in the Rockies, till the kids don Mounty gear and capture the bad guys for good. A celebratory parade at sundown leads the kids and Daddy back home into Mom's waiting arms.
