SUMMARY: In this sequel to I Want My Mommy, Arthur is spending the day at home with his dad. Arthur tries to build a castle by himself, but things are not working out well. He calls for his dad who comes and shows Arthur how to build a castle that will be strong enough to play in. Arthur plays by himself for a little while until he falls and calls for his dad. Dad comes and tells him it's okay. The two then go to the park and play together on the play castle at the playground. When they return home, Arthur makes a crown for his dad because "Every knight needed a king for his castle." He presents his crown and gets a tight hug in return.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations are big, soft and colorful making them perfect for the youngest viewers. Arthur's cuteness factor is a 10 out of 10!

REVIEW: After reading I Want My Mommy, I was so excited when this second book finally came out. I may have even liked it a bit more than the first book. I can't decide! I loved watching the close relationship between father and son. Arthur's dad, instead of putting him down for his failures, lifts him up and shows him ways to be successful. Arthur's dad takes time to play with him, but also spends time getting his own work done. I love the part in the beginning where they say, "Knights together?" "Knights forever!" and at the end where they say, "Hugs together?" "Hugs forever!" This is a wonderful warm and fuzzy story for dad and son to read together.
