"I'm taking you out for Father's Day," Susie tells Dad. "First we'll go for lunch." "Good," Dad says. "May I drive?" "Certainly," Susie says. She chooses the restaurant, and pretty soon Dad can see that she's filled this special day with treats - treats for both of them! When they get back home, Mom's final surprise (that isn't really a surprise at all) is a perfect ending for the perfect day.

From Our Editors

"It's Father's Day and four-year-old Susie has planned a perfect outing with all the things she knows her dad will like the best . . . Bunting's simple witty text sketches a warm father-daughter relationship and affectionately glances at the four-year-old mind at work . . . A charming Father's Day offering that would be equally good reading all year long".--Booklist. Full-color illustrations

Editorial Reviews

It's Father's Day, and four-year-old Susie has planned a perfect outing with all the things she knows her dad will like the best. . . . Bunting's simple, witty text sketches a warm father-daughter relationship and affectionately glances at the four-year-old mind at work. Meddaugh's bright watercolors and pencil illustrations add to the humor as they show the two enjoying the day but with clearly differing levels of energy and points of view." Booklist, ALA"Clearly the perfect Father's Day requires the perfect father, and Susie's parent quite literally takes the cake. Meddaugh's balloon-colored cartoons are perfectly tuned to the spirit of the day. With more spontaneity than most made-to-order picture books, this is an engaging family portrait and a winning tribute to 'Dad.'" School Library Journal "
