Blue-Ribbon Dad

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In this sweet, rhyming picture book, a little boy thinks about all the special things he does with his dad—schoolwork, reading, swimming lessons, haircuts, and more—and decides to craft a present, a homemade blue ribbon, to show his dad how much he loves him. The boy counts down the hours until his dad comes home, recalling their favorite memories and preparing the special gift. 

Simple text for the earliest readers and cuddly squirrel characters make this precious picture book the perfect way to celebrate Dad on Father's Day, or any day of the year.

Praise for Blue-Ribbon Dad

“A slam dunk for Father’s Day.” –Booklist

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 04, 2011 – A young squirrel hustles to get a surprise ready before his father comes home. While working on an arts-and-crafts project that necessitates glue, glitter, sequins, stickers, and more, the squirrel reflects on everything his father does for him. "He always packs my favorite lunch,/ Then drives me right to school./ On Saturdays he stays to watch/ My lessons at the pool." Moore's delicately outlined watercolors mirror the coziness of the text. The squirrel's father is delighted, of course, with the blue ribbon he receives upon his return; readers don't have to go through nearly as much effort: a punch-out paper ribbon is included. Ages 3 7.
