Sometimes daddies are silly.
Sometimes they forget things.
Sometimes they are embarrassing.
But there’s nothing better than your daddy.

A hilarious picture book about daddies.
For everyone ages 4 and up.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is a picture book all about daddies featuring a rhino family. Narrated by one of the children, it's basically just a collection of fatherly traits. Anyone who has a father can probably relate to at least some of them (including when they sneak farts in the car).

Did I love it, though? Not really. There's no story, and once you get past the novelty of a family of rhinoceri who dress like humans, it's just okay.

But this would be a sweet little book for kids to share with their dads (perhaps on Father's Day).

Thank you to NetGalley and Clavis Publishing for providing a digital ARC.
