A great book for fathers and sons to share.

"Prap's perky rhymes assure readers that fathers and sons are very much a team -- that affection isn't just about hero worship."
-- Publishers Weekly

Simple rhymes, delightful illustrations and a collection of daddies -- from rhinos to kangaroos to monkeys -- roam through this upbeat book.

It's bedtime and the son has a special request.

"It's time for bed," my Daddy said.
"Just five more minutes' play."
"Then let's pretend we're animals!"
Is what he hears me say.


My daddy is a rhino.
We wallow in the swamp.
We make the whole world tremble.
When we stomp! stomp! stomp!
