Kevin and His Dad

by Irene Smalls
illustrated by Michael Hays

Little, Brown and Company 1999

What could be better for a young boy than to spend a whole day with his father?

With Mom away on a Saturday, that’s exactly what Kevin gets to do. First he and his dad clean the house together, and then it’s time for baseball practice and even a movie.

Told in Kevin’s words, this lovely picture book evokes the excitement, pride, pleasure, and love a boy can experience with a father who includes him in both the work and play of a weekend day.
