Anthony Browne, award-winning author and illustrator of Willy's Pictures and many other witty picture books, pays bright and loving homage to that most remarkable of beings, the dad. Every illustration depicts the world as seen from the low height of the little boy narrator and through his starry-eyed gaze, as well. Sure, we might look at this man and see a slightly overweight fellow with five o'clock shadow and poor taste in nightwear, but to his son, this is Man. He is everything. And until that fateful day when the boy begins to roll his eyes at his dad's hopelessly embarrassing ways, Dad should just revel in the divine, unadulterated love of his child. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

Kids and adults alike will relate to many if not all of the situations a Dad can overcome in this book. Lots of discussion and imagination stretching can be had after reading each page in this beautifully presented text. The quirky illustrations with the everpresent plaid dressing gown in every picture make for an entertaining book for all ages.
My Dad makes a great gift for any child who loves Dad and any Dad who adores his child.
Fathers will take heart from the way their heroism is portrayed. They get to look like themselves part of the time, in bathrobe and exaggerated smiles. When the book says that they can jump over the moon, the illustration makes it clear that this is an optical illusion helped by having the moon be low on the horizon and the father being close to the viewer. A father also becomes as big as a house (not fat, mind you) by standing very close, again, to the viewer.
But there are magical moments, when father is transformed into anthropomorphic animals wearing remnants of his normal attire. These are hilarious. I especially liked the one where dad is "as happy as a hippopotamus."
The text does have a few places where real accomplishments are needed. "He can . . . win the father's race on sports day, easily." "My dad's a great dancer, and a ballet singer." "He's fantastic at soccer . . . ." Fathers, don't be threatened by this! After all, the perspective is that of a preschooler, and you can do great things in all of those dimensions!Read more ›
With a smile on every page - this is a book forever - about respecting & loving, admiring & encouraging the Dads of this world to unite & win over their children's hearts.
Lovely, lovely book & oh, so true! A charming keeper!
My almost 2 year old adores this book and it has been his absolute favourite for the past 3 months. Yes, I have read it almost daily as a result. But despite that, his almost 5 year old sister and I are still happy to endure another reading even if we all know the words by heart, have gorilla impressions that David Attenborough would be proud of, and can do a rendition of "O Sole Mio" that would have the Three Tenors groaning. And that cheeky face on the cover? Well, the 2 year old now pulls faces exactly like that and it makes ME laugh every time. That Anthony Browne? He's alright and I hope he's somebody's Dad.
I wondered if our children's books picture Mom and Dad equally. I know children's book do not yet show enough non traditional households, but how do they show families in general?
Then I started looked at how we see Dad's in our children's books. It is amazing how we see Dads! With 200 books that I looked at --- not a single time did a father hug, kiss or care for a kid. What is going on with our children's story writers and illustrators? Then I found this book and I am so happy!
