his endearing picture book opens, '
Some daddies sing you awake
' beside a picture of a joyous Papa bird singing to his nestlings. It continues to show what a variety of daddies from the animal kingdom do for their offspring.
here's a gorilla, a fish, a fox, a zebra, a penguin, a flamingo, a wolf, a horse, and more. These caring daddies comb hair, build houses, play with their children, search for them, face danger, encourage them and give comfort, just as human fathers do.
nd that's where the sweet story ends - '
From all of the daddies, / tall or small, / mine is the best, / the very best, / the very best / daddy of all
' - on a hug, just as the young reader's father will end his story.
