Kevin and His Dad
by Irene Smalls

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.
