LoveReading View on If I were you

Shortlisted for the Pre-School Award, Early Year Awards 2009

 

This book is completely wacky but kids, both girls and boys, and parents too, will delight in Babette Cole’s humorous illustrations and Richard Hamilton’s lively text. Daisy and her father swap their lives and Dad, dressed in a tutu, is taken off to the park and to the zoo among other places by Daisy.  Wow, what a story! Would you dare do that to your dad?

If I were you Synopsis

When Dad puts Daisy to bed, he suggests, 'If I were you ...I'd go to sleep.' So cheeky Daisy starts thinking about what things would REALLY be like if she and Dad swapped around. She could feed Dad porridge while she ate chocolate fromage frais and would wheel him past the neighbours all dressed in pink! Dad thinks it would be great not to have to do any cleaning or cooking but to visit the zoo and play in the park instead!
