What Dads Can't Do by Douglas Wood, Doug Cushman (Illustrator)
Story of a patient single father and his know-it-all son. The child
narrates the tale. Perceptive kids will see that this father is both
safety-conscious and one very good sport. Most well-loved will recognize
traits of their own father as they read how dads "can't cross the
street without holding hands" and "can't pitch a baseball very
hard or hit one very far."
Cushman illustrates the statement "Dads aren't good at sleeping
an image of the youngster pulling covers off his dad while the
alarm clock reads 5:05; the father is shown buying a toy robot
as his son accuses dads of having "trouble holding onto their money";
and at bedtime, the child pulls the blanket over his head
as he notes that dads "like to check under the bed for monsters."
