Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug by J D Lester

This is a children's board book and is illustrated by Hiroe Nakata. The book was provided by Random House.

The title caught my eye and then the front illustration drew me into the book. This is the perfect book for a small one who loves to laugh.

Daddy calls he/she many little endearments (as most parents do) and each name evokes an illustration of animal parents of all kinds doing fun things with their small ones.

The board book is heavy duty and should withstand small hands looking at the pictures again and again. After a few rereadings, children will probably be able to read the story and make the fun noises all by themselves!

This is a great children's book - it made me smile. Look for it at your local bookstore, it came out April 27th. Happy reading!

This sounds great. As a kindergarten teacher, I see tons of "Mama' books. We need more good Daddy books!
