mostly wordless, encourages interaction and thinking with the reader, to do lists are more fun when you do them together and make them more exciting.

A fun, colorful story that features a father and son doing chores. I always love when a story features a special father/son relationship, and this one does not disappoint!

What's a kid to do when Dad has a long to-do list and none of it sounds like much fun? Why just get your trusty crayon and edit that list! "Make the beds" becomes "Sail a pirate ship", and "Hang the laundry" becomes "Join the circus". I love the illustrations, which look like bright, colorful, scribbly drawings of a child. Also, the spare text gives readers lots of opportunities to talk about the illustrations as you read!
