As Daddy and his doodlebug snack on potoodle chips, padoodle their canoe, and count firefloodles, they savor the special joys of companionship by spending time doing the things they love, together.

Bruce Degen's inventive rhyme and lush paintings animate a miniature world full of bugs galore, in which buttons serve as the wheels of a teacup buggy and pencils hold up the swing set! This fanciful storyoodle begs to be read aloud over and over again.
