Probably more of a 3.5 rating. Daddy's size allows him to do certain things and his son's smaller size allows him to do certain things. Valuing who we are, when we are.

This book is about a young boy discussing all the things he wants to do when he becomes an adult. The message to children is that growing up takes time.
Ages 3-5
