This is the book my dad read me when I was a little girl, along with the stories of his own boyhood. And then I re-read more than once myself. The original book belonged to my youngest uncle and it was a hand-me-down book which I have still kept preciously preserved, I have also scanned and made a pdf copy of the almost 50 year old original book to give to my family and friends to read. The story of little daddy or 'Baba' in Bangla never failed to amuse me as a child. How he was being mean and possessive with his bright new ball, and how that eventually taught him a lesson on how to share to the time he first went to school, and the bullies and the mishaps there. The most fascinating story is probably the one where he decides what to be in life when he grows up.

I simply loved this book as a child because Baba was clumsy and dorky and funny. But as I grew up I realized how Raskin conveys the more serious aspects of life and growing up as a good person through the mishaps and anecdotes of his own childhood and that with a rather amusing ease, which makes me appreciate the book even more.
