About this item


About the Book

A father tries to impress his children by making a rocket ship, a chariot, and a rollercoaster out of the recycling bin, until he realizes his children are happy to just play with him.

Book Synopsis

A loving dad goes a little over-the-top as he tries to DIY the best day ever for his kids in this funny, tender, vibrantly illustrated picture book from the viral video star behind Dude Dad and A Dude's Guide to Baby Size.

When Mom heads out for a day of shopping and self-care, Dad knows it's "the perfect opportunity for a spectacular, build-tastic, super-Dad plan." Eager for his three kids to have the best day ever, Dad throws himself into build after build--from a leaf-blower-powered rocket ship to an ice cream truck with sherbet shooters--each more elaborate than the last. But one after another, the kids (including the unusually well-spoken baby) decline to play with Dad's creations. Feeling dejected, Dad starts to put away his tools, but then his kids are finally able to tell him what they really want . . . to play with him!
