From everyone’s favorite one-haired baby comes a fond and funny ode to a special daddy, for Father’s Day or any day.

Uppy, Daddy! Up so high.
On the shoulders. Touch the sky.

Baby’s daddy is big and strong, and his legs are so, so long. He plays horsey, he sings, he cooks, he cleans—this daddy can do anything! In a sweet, simple board book threaded with signature humor, Leslie Patricelli pays tribute to the bond between a little one and a doting daddy.
Patricelli’s round-faced baby is back in this delightful board book celebrating fathers. . . . Gender stereotypes are pushed against in a compilation of tasks Dad accomplishes such as cleaning, giving a bath, and cooking.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

In simple, lilting text, our protagonist discusses Mom’s and Dad’s superlative traits and describes special time spent with each of them...Patricelli’s recognizable colorsaturated and textured art, with thick black outlines and rosy-cheeked characters, is always welcome, and now, especially, pandemic-weary parents may appreciate the boost.
—The Horn Book
