Some daddies stop for doughnuts.”), but brings it all together every few pages with lines like, “All daddies love to kiss and hug you!” or “All daddies like to watch you sleep!” Parr’s quirky artwork and eternally optimistic – yet never saccharine – books are truly irresistible, for both grown-ups and kids.
