This was my very favorite book as a kid, and I was thrilled to be able to share it with my boys, 6&8, especially since we have an infamous poacher in our family. There is a dearth of great books with involved Fathers, and this Dad is fabulous. We listened to this twice in a row on the way to different activities over two weeks. I also liked that there is a gentle introduction to not so nice people (including teachers), no fighting, and only one incidence of first person violence (by a teacher).
