Even though they did all of "dad's" favorite things, they were actually Susie's. The dad just enjoyed spending time with his daughter and was happy with anything she wanted them to do. I loved the line "and there are four yellow candles, one for every year you've been my dad". ( )

33 months -This is not the greatest of story telling especially for Eve Bunting but it's still really nice to have a book to read on Father's Day. ( )

Four year old Susie has the perfect day planned for her dad for Father's day. As they start their day together doing the things she says her dad loves, it so happens to be all of Susie's favorite things to do. This is a great way to teach your children that it isn't all about what you do together, it is the quality time spent that means the most! ( )

This book is about a little girl who takes her dad out for Father's Day. It is kind of funny because the little girl does everything that she enjoys and says " you like (what the activity is) don't you dad." The dad goes to a restaurant, feeds ducks, goes to the park, swing set, merry go around and buys balloons. The little girl has a surprise and she ends up telling her father what it is. This story is a cute story for a young child to read to her daddy on Father's day. ( )

This book is about a four-year-old spending the day with her dad on Father’s Day. She plans all of her favorite activities, assuming that they are his favorite, as well. They eat fast food, go to the park, and enjoy their time together.

I think this book is really cute, and it perfectly showcases the mind of a four-year-old. I really like the watercolor illustrations, as well.

In the classroom, I would read this book around Father’s Day, and we would discuss ways in which the students can show their love and appreciation to their fathers or father figures. Another idea is to discuss other people’s view points, and the fact that individuals enjoy different things. I would have the students write down their favorite foods and activities, then share their papers with each other.

"I'm taking you out for Father's Day," Susie tells Dad. "First we'll go for lunch." "Good," Dad says. "May I drive?" "Certainly," Susie says. She chooses the restaurant, and pretty soon Dad can see that she's filled this special day with treats--treats for both of them! When they get back home, Mom's final surprise (that isn't really a surprise at all) is a perfect ending for the perfect day.
