“I don’t want to go to school today.
Pooh,” my teacher whined.
“Oh, not again,” I told my dad.
“I know you’re feeling fine.”
“Oh no, I’m not! My tummy hurts!”
Said teacher who’s my dad
While curling up into a ball
And making his face sad.

“Sonya Annita Song’s children’s picture book, My Teacher Dad, is one of those books that will resonate with anyone who’s ever dreaded getting up and going to school. . . . Song narrates her story in wacky and wonderful rhymes that will keep kids giggling and help new readers sound out new words. Kate Fallahee’s illustrations had me closely examining each panel with surprise and delight as I discovered a multitude of peculiar and very funny things lurking in every corner and under every bed. . . . This is one of those books that will be as much fun for the moms, dads and caregivers reading it aloud as it is for their young listeners. “”GET UP!” I roared. I know you’re fine!” Who hasn’t heard those words in that tone before? Reading My Teacher Dad made my day. It is most highly recommended.”
