You never know when I might play a wild card on you!
My Review: I loved this book - It ends exactly how my husband and son play. They are forever making up games that are just for the two of them. I found them tonight playing the "thunder game" before bed. I haven't come across too many books that highlight the relationship between a man and his children - and how important that relationship can be. If there is a dad out there who is not sure how to relate to his kids - or how to play with them - just have him pick up this book and see what he comes up with! Fun rhymes, bright pictures - activities that are very visual - all make this a fun to read book whether you are a dad - or mom!
