Publisher: Chronicle Books, 2014

Summary: Can you match the Daddy to his legs? A mix and match book with lots of daddies and lots of silly legs to choose. Does a daddy gorilla have eight legs or two hairy legs? This is an interactive board book where the page is split

Type of Reading: playtime reading, read aloud book, interactive reading

Recommended Age: read together: 1 to 4; read yourself: 7 to 10

Interest Level: 1 to 4

Age of Child: Read with children ages 5 and 3.

Young Reader Reaction: I picked this one out for us to read. My kids thought it was silly the first time, but didn't have any interest in reading it again.

Adult Reader Reaction: I like Daddy Wrong Legs and would have appreciated it more a few years ago when my kids were younger. It is silly and the illustrations are funny, as well as being mix and match so it's a book that the little readers could handle themselves. This is a book that would be great for parents of infants and toddlers (1 to 2 years old).

Pros: Cute illustrations on a board book sized for little hands make this nice. The true appeal is the Daddy mix and match activities, which are always fun. The story also has clever word usage.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. This would be a great book for a one or two year old to hold, turn the pages, and giggle with the reader. Additionally, so many board books are about mommies that it's nice to have diversity in subject matter. Particularly when it's so funny for a toddler.

Educational Themes: This is a story for "playing" with books. It can be fun to help with teaching kids to recognize the differences between animals. It is also a good memory exercise for little ones.
