How to Cheer Up Dad
Fred Koehle
4 stars

Little Jumbo is worried about Dad. He needs some cheering up. Mostly as a result of what a toddler might do to cause a parent-sized headache…but Little Jumbo is still worried. When Little Jumbo can’t put Dad in a time-out to make Dad feel better, Little Jumbo really has to think about how to bring a smile to Dad’s face. This is a sweet book about a dad and his little elephant. Most parents and toddlers will find truth and humor in what happens in the book. And perhaps the laugh that the book brings will cause a little extra cuddle time for the Dads who are reading this story to their “little jumbos”. A fun book to read for Father’s Day.

What to do after reading this book:
Go on an adventure with your Dad.
Have some ice cream.
Go fishing.
Read another story together.
Plan a play date with your child/grown up (let each one pick something to do).
Pretend you are an elephant.
Let the other person pick your outfit for the day.
