PreS Each line of this simple book begins with the title phrase. As a young boy rides his way through a special day, he comments on how this elevated perspective affects his relationship to his world. He's taller than his big brother and a giraffe at the zoo. He can touch the tops of trees and slam-dunk a basketball. He can even touch the moon and the stars. All of this makes him, the happiest kid in the world.” Smooth, bright, and cheerful illustrations create an easygoing atmosphere. The day's adventures are pleasant and the boy's statements are made believable through the art. This is an appealing look at quality time spent between a father and son, even though most adults will be amazed at Dad's stamina. Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
PreS. This picture book celebrates a day shared between a young boy and his father. Corvino's sunny paintings fill each double-page spread, in which the boy rides on his father's shoulders. In just a few lines of text on each spread, the boy describes the view from his new perspective: I am as big as our great big house.” Down the winding road to the zoo, the boy is able to touch” the tops of trees and fly” like a bird. He seems taller than giraffes and hills and clouds. At dusk, as father and son return home, the boy feels that he can touch the moon and stars.” The book ends with a sentence that reinforces the book's message: Up on Daddy's shoulders, I'm the happiest kid in the world.” Easy on the eyes and ears, this title's rhythm and attractiveness make it a fine read-aloud choice, especially at bedtime. Pair this with titles in the Read-alikes feature, A Day with Dad,” in Booklist's June 2005 issue. Kathy Broderick
