A young boy tells us about all of the things he can do. His list of superlative accomplishments are made possible with the support and assistance of his Dad.
The superlatives all fit things that a toddler can do--and reiterate the things parents want them to learn (like being polite)!
There are a few. If you have a little girl who is a literalist, she won't have much fun. And while toddler-speak is great for the kids, it can get tedious for parents asked to read it over and over and over again.
This was an immediate hit, with a whole series of "again" when we read it at the first sitting. Our young daughter loved the story and saw quickly tried to immitate all of the things the young, blue elephant did.
This is a quick, fun read. The sentences phrase pride and accomplishment in the way that toddlers do (and say).
With this book, toddlers & preschoolers can learn how to express their pride in and love for others.
This is mostly a story about celebrating "look at me" the way toddlers and preschoolers love. You might get in a lesson here or there, but it's really just a daddy-and-me celebration.

Read with 2½ year-old girl.
This one could go either way. It's a perfect Father's Day gift from a child. Then again, there isn't enough story to make it a permanent part of a library over the long term.
