    1. Author Bo R. Holmberg creates a narrative that deals with a sensitive topic not very often exposed to young children—children dealing with their parent’s separation. In A Day With Dad, little Tim lives with his mom and his dad lives in another town. His dad comes to visit him, so they can spend the whole day together, just father and son. Tim is very happy to see his father and spend time with him, and the author makes it apparent that the father is also very happy to see Tim and spend time [...]

    2. I selected "A Day with Dad" as my WOW book because the love shared between Tim and his dad touched my heart. I appreciate the way this story depicts how a family handled divorce in a child friendly way. This realistic fiction book is appropriate for grades K-2. Tim's dad travels by train to visit his son who lives in another city. They spend the day together doing special son and dad activities. My favorite activity is when they visit the library together. This story depicts love as Tim tells ev [...]

    4. A realistic fiction book about a dad coming to spend the day with his son. The parents are assumed to be estranged or divorced, and the little boy is excited to spend time with his father, who he never sees. It's a short story which presents itself well through pictures. The illustrations are heartwarming as is the text. The father and child are of an ambiguous race, which could be viewed as Caucasian or even a mixed child with an Asian father. The race is not a focal point of the story. This te [...]

    5. This book started out with a Tim at the train station with his mom waiting for his dad to come in for the day. When his dad's train gets in Tim gets to spend the whole day with him. They get hot dogs, go to the movies, get pizza, go to the library, and then get a snack before heading back to the train station. Every place they go Tim tells everyone that this is his dad. At the end of the day, Tim does not want his dad to go, but knows that he will see him soon. This book was cute, but not one of [...]

    6. I really enjoyed A Day with Dad by Bo R. Holmberg. It tells the story of a little boy spending the day with his dad. I really loved how the author pointed out a lot of details and kept showing how proud the little boy was to be with his dad. I also really liked the style of illustration that was used in this book. I think this would be a great book to have in a classroom. It would be easily relatable to any children whose parents are divorced or even to any children who are just really close wit [...]

    7. This book is about a young boy who's parents are separated. He spends the day with his dad, but at the end of the day he goes back home with his mother. There will be all kinds of families in a classroom. The class should be informed of all the different types of families. This book will talk about separated families.

    8. A book about a child, Tim, whose parents are divorced and his dad comes to visit and spend the day with him. The illustrations are sad but it could be used to discuss divorce with children. It is another story that shows that all families are different. Good for K and up.

    9. Tim waits with excitement for a train to bring his father, who lives in another town, then spends an entire day with him, doing all of their favorite things, until it is time for Dad to catch the train home.

    11. One of the better picture books dealing with the concept of parents that are seperated. A nice father and son story. I love the ending and how Tim can't see the train but tracks are still there and one they soon those tracks will bring dad back! Aaaawh, :)
