PreSchool-Grade 1–A welcome companion to the Rockwells' Mother's Day (HarperCollins, 2004). When the students in Mrs. Madoff's class are asked to write books about their dads, each child's work illustrates a distinctive aspect of the relationship with a pleasing variety of multicultural nuances. Lizzie Rockwell's cheery illustrations closely follow the text, with color and simplicity that will appeal to young children. In addition to honoring fatherhood, a very basic understanding of bookmaking is revealed as the students write and illustrate their work before taking it to the school's publishing center. Another noteworthy aspect to this seemingly straightforward book is the variety of family configurations included. Most children will be able to make a connection to the positive role models, even if their own fathers don't fit these ideals. Don't limit this book to Father's Day–it should be enjoyed year round. Also, teachers will find it useful for stimulating discussion about what makes a family.–Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME
