Imagine if children were in charge for a day! A girl tells her mama, If I were your mother I'd bring you breakfast on a silver tray...build you a giant tree house...and give you a bath with goldfish!

Playful dialogue and tender illustrations genuinely capture the spirit of friendship and affection between parent and child.

One of two (If I Were Your Father) read aloud treasures that invite the very young to share their own dream and wishes with parents.
