  It is truly wonderful how a caring and loving father can make a child feel as if he or she is the most favored and luckiest child around. In this simply told story the author reminds us of this and we experience once again the joy that a loving father can give to a little child. The little elephant tells us that he is the "tallest," "fastest," "strongest," "smartest," "cutest," "bravest," and "luckiest boy on my block." He is all of these things and more because of his father who plays with him and helps him, who encourages him and praises him.
  Together the father and the son experience many of the joys, and sometimes the fears of a child's world. There are bath nights and learning how to add; there is being pushed on a bicycle and being taken to the dentist.
  A parent reading this book will smile and remember what it was like to be small again, and a child will smile and remember all the times his father did all those same things for him. This book would make a wonderful gift for father's day.
