Oh, Daddy! by Bob Shea

Just in time for Father's Day, a new Bob Shea book has hit the shelves!!! Bob is the author of Big Plans ( a favorite of Bill's) and has written and illustrated New Socks, Dinosaur Vs. Bedtime as well as Race You To Bed. I am a huge Bob Shea fan and can't wait to add his newest book, Oh Daddy, to the Bob Shea basket in my classroom library.

Oh, Daddy is the story of the silly teasing-type adventures that Daddy hippo has with his son. It is perfect fit for primary readers with predictable and repetitive text. Daddy hippo plays up silly scenarios... Is this how you get dressed? (with underwear on his head and a bucket for a shoe) Is this how you get into the car? and Is this how you eat carrots? Of course the little hippo says...Oh Daddy, and shows his dad how to get dressed, get into the car and eat carrots. The story and characters are lovable re-readable. I can't wait to see what the kids think next year!
