Dad or Dud?,
This review is from: My Father Knows the Names of Things (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The concept behind the book is sweet and true (if slightly patriarchal, like Adam naming the animals with God); to children it must seem magical that parents know the names of things with such specificity, yet without more wit or humor (the art could pull more weight here), it kind of fizzles. The book hits me as a product written to the Father's Day market, rather than a story written to children.
