Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Harvey's three siblings have firm ideas of what constitutes perfect gifts for their dad (after all, they give him the same things every year and he responds with, "I can always use more…"). The poor little cub is clueless, but then he comes up with the best gift of all—drawings that show all of the meaningful ways that his father has helped and supported him. This focus on innocence creates an underlying message that may be too sophisticated for preschool audiences without discussion. The father is shown as a loving, sensible man who appreciates every attempt that his children make to please him. The illustrations are bright and expressive, and the rooms in the bears' cozy house are filled with homey details. An endearing story that will charm readers.—Kathleen Pavin, Purdy Elementary School Library, Fort Atkinson, WI

From Booklist

Harvey doesn't know what to get his dad for Father's Day. He asks his older siblings, who come up with the usual items (ties, a box of nails, golf balls). During the day, Harvey suffers small traumas (a fall and a flat tire on his bike), and his dad is there to help him. Then comes bedtime, and Dad reads Harvey a story. Harvey wakes up in the middle of the night with an idea for the perfect gift: a drawing recapping all of the great things his dad did for him the day before. Ember elevates the cuddly factor by depicting the family members as clothed bears in settings and situations kids will recognize. Nolan and Ember aren't breaking new ground here, but librarians seeking simple Father's Day stories for their collections might find what they're looking for here. Todd Morning

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A "Father's Day Thank You" is an excellent book about helping children understand what the meaning of Fatherhood is all about. This book is what you will want to read to your kids so that you can talk with them about what is a nice present. A picture by the kids of how their Dad has helped them will mean more to any Dad than purchased items ever will. Any book, such as this one, that fosters a focus on what is real giving is so important in today's materialistic world. All children need more that reminds them of what matters in a good Dad. That recognition will always be treasured more by any Dad than store bought gifts. I highly recommend that you read this book to your children.
