My daddy is a great big bear.

Editorial Reviews

Thompson's mixed-media-with-collage illustrations bring the fun to life, the daughter's joy and the father's exuberance more than evident on every page. Bright colors and a scratchy, splotchy style suit the topic, and observant readers can see details in the pictures that lead the child to think her dad is each kind of animal. readers at home and at school will enjoy using this as a springboard for describing their own dads and the things they do together."
