Review

"My Dad Is A Great Man is written by Zehavit Tzarfati and illustrated by Mindy Liang. Within its pages you will find adventure, excitement, compassion, love, and the admirable characteristics of a father. A young boy is allowed to play in his dad's study. Filled with excitement and the need to explore, the boy begins to snoop around and finds a few of his dad's belongings. As he handles and examines each item, the boy imagines how each item serves its place in the study. The father explains to his son that each item did not serve the purpose the boy had imagined, but the boy loves his father anyway, and still thinks his dad is a great man.

Zehavit Tzarfati and Mindy Liang have created a wonderful, heartfelt and loving story, with very colorful, vibrant pictures. This story will hold a place in any reader's heart who knows a young boy who thinks the world of their father. I loved the extreme visions the boy had thought each item he found was once used for. A young boy that admires his father would think he did great things such as dig for dinosaur bones because he has a hat that resembles the one an archaeologist would wear. It is a very sweet story that every father and son should read together. I was very excited when I found at the end of the book a link to an activity kit for parents to do with their children. A very cute read, and awesome activity link" - Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite

Zehavit Tzarfati lives in Tel Aviv, Israel. She holds a BA in Psychology and Education, and a Masters in Public Policy. Zehavit loves animals and children, and it's this love that urged her to dedicate her time to writing stories for young children. Her tales are original and all of them feature eye-catching illustrations which aid young readers in understanding the text within each story.

Zehavit Tzarfati lives in Tel Aviv, Israel and holds a BA in Psychology and Education, and a Masters in Public Policy. Her love of animals and children is the stimulus for writing and illustrating her books that are easily accessible to children - and will delight parents who encourage reading to children at bedtime as a beginning step In appreciating books and learning to read. Her very fine illustrator is Mindy Liang.

A young lad discovers all manner of things about his father simply by spending time his father's study. He finds photographs of his father in a wetsuit with tanks on his back (could he be a famous diver, be in the navy, fix submarines?). He finds a Safari hat (could he search for dinosaurs?). He finds a compass (could his dad be an famous explorer of foreign places?). He finds a golden pen that must mean his dad is an important businessman. He finds a newspaper clipping that suggests his dad may be a champion runner. But when his dad comes home and the boy presents all the possibilities of what he is dad does, his dad tells him he rescues sea animals, saves animals from poachers, uses his gold pen to write poems, and helps train runners in the Special Olympics - all tasks that make the world a better place and the boy decides his dad is the greatest!

This book is a fine way to introduce children to the important things we can do with our lives - that fame is less important than caring - and love goes along with all that. Grady Harp, September 13

When the young narrator of the story examines his dad's study, he discovers evidence that his dad is a great man with many accomplishments. For example: a compass implied that his dad was a great explorer; a gold pen must mean his dad is a powerful businessman. When he asks his dad about what he's found, he learns that the truth is a bit more down to earth, but it means that his dad is even more than what he thought he was.

The illustrated story sends a message to youngsters that their parents don't have to be wealthy and famous to be proud of them. Parents loving their kids and teaching them what they need to know are enough. And reading them bedtime stories, too!

I see that this is Zehavit's first book, and that she has a few more. I like her ideas and believe she does a professional job when it comes to formatting books for children. This book was short and very sweet, perfect as a bedtime story for children. And the video is very nice, too!

This author targets her books towards children aged 3 to 9 years old, and also mentions that her books are great as stories to be read by parents to young children, or as stories to be read by children learning to read. She is spot on! So, a perfect buy for anyone with younger and older children.

MY DAD IS A GREAT MAN is a fun little read that follows a young boy as he puts the pieces of his Dad's life together like a jigsaw puzzle. It teaches about leaping to conclusions and the power of imagination and how much a parent's life can be a bit of a mystery to ANY child.

A great little book for all of you Dad's out there for the very next time your child asks you to "Read me a story!"

yours in storytelling,

Steve Vernon

When I `clicked to look inside' I saw the first illustration. It was enough to get me to want to buy this little book. I like the story, as does my sister.

Important character traits for children to learn - and beautifully presented. Nice way to introduce the conversation of "daddy appreciation".
