It is a long, difficult climb from the tops of Daddy's toes to the tippy-top of Daddy's head. If you don't move up carefully, catastrophe awaits.
The pictures say it all, even without the narration. The story makes tangible the ideas in a preschooler's imagination.
None, really, but be forewarned that the book could well encourage new ways to play!
The story only affirmed our preschooler's 'right' to climb on Daddy…and gave her more ideas on how do do it. Needless to say, s/he uses her imagination to bring the story to life.
The book lays out exactly how Daddy (or Mommy) feel when a little person wants to be a TALL person. It's a fun read. The story Daddy must be the most pain tolerant, patient man in the world! Mommy fainting at the end is a little over the top.
This is a story that puts into pictures and words how every child envisions the parental jungle gym!
This is a toughy. You might be able to use the pictures to illustrate safe play or remind kids that this is a Daddy-and-me game (I.e., not other adults).

Started reading with a child when she was 3 years old. This is still a favorite at 7.
Buy. There are few must-have Daddy books, and this is a sweet one. It's a perfect gift from a child to Daddy, too.
