Reagan, Jean. How to Surprise a Dad. Illustrated by Lee Wildish. Alfred A. Knopf, 2015. ISBN 978-0-553-49836-3. 25 pgs. Ages 2-6. P8/Q9
From the creators of “How to Babysit a Grandpa” comes a book about a brother and sister who think up ways to surprise their Dad–and they enlist their mother to help with the surprise. Includes humorous notes and suggestions aimed at both child readers and adults who read to children. I think preschoolers will find this book a fun resource for ways to surprise their Dads. I like the end papers because they look like a little kid’s scrapbook pages about a Dad.
