Daddy and his doodlebug doodle the things that doodlebugs like to do. They snack on potoodle chips while walking through the zoo, ride the caboodle car on the train, and padoodle their canoe through the sun and the rain. And at night when it's time to turn out the light, they say, "Don't let the bedboodles bite!" Because that's what doodlebugs do!

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-A charming picture book full of clever wordplay and distinctive illustrations. Written as if a young boy-er, bug-were describing favorite activities shared with his dad, Degen's rhyming text incorporates freshly coined words such as "potoodle chips," "firefloodles" and "fairytoodles." Like kids everywhere, the narrator enjoys visiting the zoo, sharing a meal, playing in the park, and listening to bedtime stories. The language is occasionally visually challenging ("canoedlebug," for example) but flows well with a little bit of practice. The attractive typeface, crisp and dark, complements the brightly colored gouache illustrations outlined in black ink. Visual humor abounds, often linked to verbal puns. The zoo, for example, features a caged dog tick, an ant lion, and a rhinoceros beetle. Various bugs perch on toadstools at the counter of "Mayfly's Diner" where a friendly looking green bug serves the narrator and his dad (noodle soup and apple strudel, of course). The layout features mostly double-page spreads depicting father-son outings. They contrast nicely with the cozy interiors and the little bug's imagined versions of storytime scenes, both shown in smaller single-page pictures. From the stylized buggy endpapers to the bouncy rhythm and delightful details, this is a carefully created ode to the loving connection between parent and child.
