Billy Collins--not to be confused with the US Poet Laureate--wrote the popular song DADDY'S LITTLE BOY in 1950.
Maggie Kneen, the illustrator of Daddy's Little Boy by Billy Collins, Daddy's Little Girl by Bobby Burke, Babe by Dick King-Smith, and other picture books, lives in Cheshire, England.From School Library Journal:
PreS–In this adaptation of Collins's 1950 song, an anthropomorphic bear and his cub play, cuddle, romp, and read together as the verses evoke the warm and fuzzy feelings a father has for his son. While some of the lines may sound dated to 21st-century ears ("You're a good little soldier who always obeys...") or saccharine ("You're my proudest possession, a gem from above..."), many parents will appreciate these heartfelt sentiments. Even though the tune may be too complicated for novice singers, the page breaks follow the song's rhythm, allowing for both reading and singing. Kneen's soft art captures the warmth of this parent-and-child relationship in a gentle color palette. The words and music notation are reproduced on the last spread. While this title does not have the wide appeal of Anthony Browne's My Dad (Farrar, 2001), it will attract adults looking for sentimental books to share with young boys.–Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
