How to Cheer Up Dad

In honor of Father’s Day this Sunday, it seems appropriate to highlight one of our new books about fathers—How to Cheer Up Dad. In Fred Koehler’s delightful picture-book debut, Little Jumbo’s dad was having a bad day, but Little Jumbo couldn’t figure out why. He, comically, looked right past his display of shooting raisins from his trunk, his refusal to take a bath, and his, let’s say, “clothes-free” stroll around the neighborhood. What could possibly be making his father so upset?! J

In an effort to help his dad improve his mood, Little Jumbo suggested a time-out, but instead, his dad sent him to time-out. Huh? During his little break, Little Jumbo thought of ideas to cheer up his grumpy dad. Starting with a hug, Little Jumbo spent the rest of the day doing things that he knew his dad would enjoy—playing baseball, sharing ice cream, fishing, and reading his favorite bedtime story. This funny storyline will resonate with dads everywhere and is a perfect choice for Father’s Day or any other day of the year!
