Sweet story of a son preparing a surprise for his father while he waits for him to return home. Written by Beth Raisner Glass (co-author of Noises at Night)and adorably illustrated by Margie Moore (A Horse's Tale, Ruby Bakes a Cake, A Gull's Story to name a few) Well done, ladies!!!
Blue-Ribbon Dad is a book about a young squirrel that loves his dad so much, he decides to make him a gift. The main characters are the young squirrel and his father. The setting is the young squirrels house. The story begins with the young squirrel telling us all about what makes his father so great. How he takes him swimming and helps him read a write. Because of all the great things his father does, he decides to make him a gift. He makes him a blue ribbon with the number 1 on it and gives it to him when he gets home from work. I recommend this book because it's really cute and family oriented. I'm a daddy's girl so I really enjoyed reading this story. Dad's are great and should be rewarded often.
Cute. A clock is highlighted throughout and can help teach about time. A punch out card is located in the back of the book so you can give your Dad a blue ribbon #1 award.June 2014I just changed my rating from 3 to 4 stars. I just saw a video of LeVar Burton reading this to a group of kids. Darling. I have to admit I didn't remember we had it. Looked it up on goodreads and oila!(love my goodreads) I reviewed it last year. I knew we must have it. We ran into my daughters room and read it again. She loves it and wants me to read it again tonight. So cute and perfect for Father's Day.
Cute story about a boy making a ribbon for his dad. Thought it was cute that it rhymed. One line ended with He's the best dad that I know! and Nathan replied with, "that's my dad!"
A fun tie in to the holiday, or anytime, for preschool storytimes.:)
