2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. Chambers HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on May 4, 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is subtitled "A Book of Thanks," and that's an apt description. To graphically illustrate the feelings of children for their fathers, and to "articulate something we may not have words to express," the author has used pictures of animals that capture the true spirit of fatherhood.

"Love You, Dad" is another superb collection of photographs from National Geographic. The book includes about fifty photographs from the animal kingdom: on land, in the sea, and in the air. Each the fifty photos is captioned with the words "Love you, Dad, for...", followed by a humorous blurb that fits the photograph perfectly.

Kudos to the author, Melina Gerosa Bellows, for creating a remarkably entertaining tribute to fathers everywhere.

Format: Hardcover
This was an amazing collection of photographs that will bring you a great picture of fatherhood that transcends human relationships through pictures of animals being great fathers. The book's collections of photos create an amazing book that any father will appreciate. So whether you are looking for a book that would be great for a gift for fathers day, or just an overall gift, this was a beautifully done book that I would highly recommend!

This gem will be a gift to my son when his soon to be born child arrives. When they celebrate their first Father's Day
together the baby will "give" it to my son, his dad. Of course Grandma, me, will "help" the baby do this.

This is a sweet and beautiful book that kids of all ages can enjoy. I bought it for my husband for Father's Day, and our preschooler loves it.
