My Father Knows the Names of Things

My Father Knows the Names of Things by Jane Yolen,
Illustrated by Stephane Jorisch, 2010.

This is another POSITIVE book about Dads. It's such a sweet book about how smart Dads are and how they are great role models for us as we are growing up and learning all that life has to offer us. There's something magical about what a child thinks of his Dad. He's big and strong, knows everything about everything, and keeps us safe.

"My father knows the names of things, of every kind of bug that stings and bites. He knows the names of cats and candies and a dozen other words for night. He knows which dinosaurs are meanist. He knows which soaps can make you cleanist. He points out everything we see and teaches all the names to me."
