One day a little boy offers to lend his father a hand with all his chores. He paints the house (and much more), cuts the grass (with scissors), and puts up a tent (sort of). By the end of the day, Dad seems more tired than usual. "Well," says the boy, "maybe I still have some things to learn, but aren't you glad, Dad, that there's one Dad thing I can do just as good as you? Give a big smoocharoo!"
This sweet and funny picture book is ideal for sharing on Father's Day or any day.
