Daddy Mountain
by Jules Feiffer

What if Daddy were a mountain? Would you be brave enough to climb him all the way to the top? What would happen if you slipped? What would happen if you fell? Could you do it? And, if you could, what would your momma say?

This simple picture book contains seeds for study of gravity and the importance of daddies. Lessons of courage and trust are inherent, too. And to top it off, it's just FUNNY!
