He can't (or won't) go to work, drive the car, take a bath, or read books. He's having a dinosaur day, in Diane Dawson Hearn's, Dad's Dinosaur Day - a perfect pick for Father's Day. It's cute, and not too scary, as "Dad" is mostly a harmless, if a bit grumpy, herbivore.
And, so as not to pick on fathers too much, "Mom" gets a dinosaur day of her own, in the end, as well.
To go along with the story, we copied a D is for Dinosaur craft, from Homeschool Creations, using some of our left over, finger painted, pages.
Because, D is for "dinosaur" AND "daddy". I think I'll save these, and have the girls write/draw a little message for the Man of the House, on the back, for Father's Day.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
