In this book, Little Critter and Little Sister plan to shower their dad and grandpa with cards, gifts, and more! Of course, Little Critter faces various setbacks along the way due to his clumsiness, but there's nothing so bad the day can't be saved.

This is a good book for introducing young children to the concept of Father's Day or for discussing ideas for celebrating the holiday with slightly older kids. The lift-the-flap illustrations are always popular with young kids and here they work with the text to highlight various mishaps that can be quickly fixed. My toddler class really enjoyed this title and learned more about Father's Day through it. That being said though, the illustrations seemed overly busy to me, in a way that seemed distracting. I'm also not crazy about the Critter family in general, having some reservations about the depictions, namely the very gendered approach (i.e., Little Sister and the mother only ever seem to wear pink and purple).

This is an adorable story about the Little Critter family celebrating Fathers Day with their family! This book really grasps the readers attention because of the extra textural features of the book. This is a story about a brother and sister who are trying to create special crafts and gifts for their father and grandfather to show how much they love and appreciate them! This book helps show the importance of Fathers Day and how this holiday is to celebrate fathers and how much we love and appreciate everything they do for their families. This is a great and cute book for children to read a story about a holiday to celebrate the men in their life! ( )
