Publisher: Blue Apple Books ISBN: 9781609051358

In this story about the relationship between a boy and his father, Edward yearns to be big like his dad and fast like a fire truck. He and his dad go to the park, then walk home, play, and have dinner before Edward has a bath and is tucked into bed. Along the way, the boy demands the chance to engage in grown-up activities, ranging from the doable (pressing the elevator button) to the less doable (outrunning a big red fire truck). Capturing the teasing affection between a young preschool boy and his dad, the simple language shows the humor, energy, and bossiness of the young child, and the father's love for his son shining through. Parents will recognize Edward's many familiar pleas, while kids will appreciate his frustrations and the spirited way that he deals with them.
