In this story a young boy contemplates parents. He has some great friends with great parents. He talks about all of the best things about each of these parents. He wishes his parents would let him do some of the cool things his friends' parents let them do. But then he thinks about his parents and what they do for him, how they spend time with him and how much they love him. And of course he realizes, he wouldn't trade his parents because they are the best.

This story from the author of the book series, If You Give A..., is a definite change. It is a more grown up picture book for slightly older children. The illustrations are quite different. They are richer and more mature. They are gorgeous, colorful and a lot of fun to look at.

I love the simplicity of the writing in this book. Numeroff is able to convey a serious subject without flowery or overly big words. This makes it a perfect early reader for independent reading. This book sends a great message to look for and concentrate on the best in the people around us.
