With Dad, It’s Like That

Written by Nadine Brun-Cosme | Illustrated by Magali Le Huche | Albert Whitman | May 1, 2016

When Mom’s at the movies, Dad is in charge for the night. And from lumpy potatoes to bathwater that’s a little too cold, nothing is quite right.

“That’s not how Mom does it,” Clara tells Dad. But she soon learns that Dad’s ways of doing things aren’t so bad—in fact, she even gets two bedtime stories! Being with Dad has its benefits; as her dad explains, “With me, it’s like that!”

"Tender cartooning and lightly mischievous humor make this a pleasing tribute to fathers who are still kids at heart."--Publisher's Weekly
