A perfect bedtime story for fathers and daughters

Before I tuck you in tonight,
Kiss your cheek and shut the light,
The last thing left for me to do
Is sing my Daddy's song to you.

And what a song it is! Ice-cream cones fall from the sky, foxes play baseball, reindeer ride in fancy cars, kangaroos bake birthday cakes, panda bears twirl hula hoops, and rain falls up instead of down.
The imaginative rhythmic text and evocative full-color paintings make this fun and reassuring good-night book ideal for Father's Day.
