When the kids give Dad a card that says, "Have a wild Father's Day," Dad knows just what to do. He says, "Let's act like animals all day long " They all hop on the bed like kangaroos, run like cheetahs at the park, and swing like monkeys at the playground. Their fun takes them through the day, until a cozy bedtime book tames down two tired kids (and their dad ).
