From the publisher

A warm father/son story in which an irresistible lion cub proudly tries to be just like Dad. Lionel can do everything Dad does: Dad combs his hair. So does Lionel. Dad scratches his arm. So does Lionel. Dad sings very, very loud. So does Lionel. But when Lionel throws all the toys in the air and they come down THUNK on Dad's head ... Dad yells! Ow! So does Lionel! Dad stops to think. Then rushes back for a big hug-Dad is very, very happy, and so is Lionel! This fun story is a discussion tool for emotional learning-over enthusiasm, mistakes, feeling upset, reconciliation, love-and a father/son relationship rarely seen in board books. Boundary-pushing Lionel has a winning, mischievous grin, and his tolerant father provides a great model for parenting. This small and sturdy board book is just right for toddlers' and preschoolers' hands and ideal to read alongside a child. Lionel Is Just Like Dad is the third book in this original board book series, designed as standalone stories that introduce developmental milestones with tolerant humor, mischief and gentle guidance. Series includes Lionel Eats All By Himself and Lionel Poops. With stories drawn from the intense emotions of toddlers, this series is built to give children confidence and the freedom to discover who they are. Translated from the French edition by Daniel Hahn.
