Somewhere in the city is a Daddy on the loose.
He looks like this…
A daddy like that is hard to miss.
If you do chance upon him, BEWARE!
This Daddy sneaks behind…
And TICKLES you in places that makes you squeal.
This Daddy lifts you up in the air…
And ZOOMS you away in a jet plane – half way round the world.
Don’t you ever ride on his back...
Because he GALLOPS you to places so far - you'll reach the moon.
Erin’s out on the search to find this Daddy.
Can you help? (illustration note: Mom and Erin catches the bus)
Shout DADDY when you see it.
Is he on the bus?
Erin spies lots of heads.
Black, brown, blue, green, yellow, red, and…
(illustration note: Mom carries Erin and stands in the back of the bus, where there’s a full view of heads with different hair color, different head covering such as caps, hats, veil and 1 bald head)
Shiny head…do you see it?
But he’s not.
Is he in the store?
Erin spies lots of legs. (illustration note: Erin walks holding Mom’s hand. )
Spotty, dotty, flowery, spotty-flowery, dotty-flowery and…
Stripy legs…do you see it?
But she’s not. (illustration note: a lady in striped pants)
Is he in the park?
Erin spies lots of Daddies. (illustration note: Daddies on benches reading newspapers)
A nose peeps out as she walks past.
Pointy nose…do you see it?
But he’s not.
Erin does not cry. She’s tough just like you.
But it is almost nap time.
Where is this Daddy?
Her eyes feel heavy and soon they close. (illustration note: Erin in Mom’s arms asleep as they walk down the road)
A soft tickle on her face wakes her.
Strong hands pick her up…
and hug her close.
Curly moustache…do you see it?
It really is him.
