Author Info
Laura Joffe Numeroff
Well known for her 1985 picture book IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE, Laura Joffe Numeroff is an author and illustrator of picture books. A reader from a young age, Numeroff has said she began drawing almost as soon as her hands were big enough to hold a crayon. Her first book, AMY FOR SHORT, was published in 1976 after she created it for her Writing and Illustrating for Children's Books class at the Pratt Institute--a class taught by author Barbara Bottner. In addition to her work as an author and illustrator, Numeroff has also been employed as a private investigator and a merry-go-round operator.
From the Publisher
Annotation In this back-to-back book, readers can learn all about what mommies do best, and then turn the book over to read about what daddies do best. The text, which is identical in both stories, demonstrates that both mommies and daddies can give piggyback rides, teach children how to ride a bicycle, and sew a button on a teddy bear. Illustrated with color drawings.
Editors Note This charming book, really two books back-to-back, shows preschoolers that mothers and fathers are equally important and equally special. Five different animal pairs demonstrate the skills that mothers possess--turn the book over and children see fathers doing the same things, in their own way. Children from any kind of family will be able to relate to the familiar domestic scenes portrayed with plenty of whimsy and warmth. Full color.
Editors Note 2 Daddies can do lots of things, like bake you a birthday cake, play with you in the park, and take you trick-or-treating. But what do they do best?Mommies can do lots of things, like teach you how to ride a bike, sew a loose button on your teddy bear, and read you a cozy bedtime story. But what do they do best? The answer is made perfectly clear in this irresistible celebration of parents and the everyday things they do.
