Daddy Makes the Best Spaghetti is a silly book about all the different ways a father can be a role model for his son that aren’t normally seen. ( )

This is a great story. The plot was well thought out and how a a way how fathers can be a different type of role model. The father is the head caretaker for the son in this book. For example, the father not only picks up his son from school, but cooks meals as well. The illustrations were easy on the eyes and that made it easier to grasp. Not many colors are bright, so the words can capture the reader's focus. The main message of the story is that not all families are the same, but work like any other. ( )

In my opinion, this is a good book. There are two main reasons why I like this book. The language that the book uses is very clear. It seems to be for younger students, so the word choices and sentence structure are easy to follow. An example of this easy to follow language can be found on the sixth page of the story, when the main character, the little boy, is setting the table for his family. He writes," And I set the table, one, two, three. One for daddy. One for Mommy. One for me. " The whole book is written in this way, which I enjoy because the plot of the story can be understood easily, even by younger students. I also liked this book, because it is written in first person. I think that this enhances the story, because we get to hear it from the perspective of (what sounds like) a little boy. He even gets very excited at one point and writes, "Ta da! Ta daaa!" Hearing this from a first hand point of view brings life to the story and makes it easy to connect with. All in all, the big idea of this story is about how close knit the family is and how much this boy loves and appreciates his parents. ( )

In my opinion, this is a simple book for early readers that is a positive example of promoting family values. The writing itself was simple, and there was only a sentence or two per page. However, the vocabulary was easy for young readers to be able to read. The plot itself was pretty basic, as there was no real conflict or issue. However, the story is told through the perspective of a young boy, and he reflects on some of his favorite past times with his father. Children will be able to relate to this book because of certain family activities the boy and father participate in, such as cooking dinner, bathtime, etc. While this book does not push readers to think about tough issues, it does shine a light and focus on how important spending time with family is.

This is a great story. I really like the plot of this story and how it shows a different role for fathers in a family. This book demonstrates the father as the head caretaker of the child, rather than the mother. For example, the father picks the child up from school, as well as cooks dinner, and gets him ready for bed. I also like how there are simple illustrations throughout the story. Not one of the colors is too bright, therefore making the words more prevalent throughout the book. Children can really focus on the words and simply use the visuals as an aid. Furthermore, this story’s main message is that not all families are the same, but they are still a functioning, as well as fun, like any other. ( )
