From theHans Christian Andersen MedalistIn an endearing homage to dads everywhere, a boy describes and exaggerates the many accomplishments and feats of his father Among the traits praised are his enormous talent for singing, his near professional wrestling skills, his extreme bravery in the face of danger he s not even afraid of the Big Bad Wolf , and his ability to quite literally, in Anthony Browne s world eat like a horse All of the pictures feature the lovable pater in his signature plaid bathrobe, adding a further comfy layer to a book whose ultimate message is I love my dad And you know what HE LOVES ME And he always will I really liked reading this story by Anthony Browne It is a picture book in which a boy describes how amazing his dad is to him He talks about how his dad s capabilities are beyond what one could even imagine I loved how the illustrations clearly matched the descriptions of his dad This book could be used during a Father s Day activity so that kids can show appreciation for their father s or father figures It could also be used to teach students metaphors and similes I also liked how throu I really liked reading this story by Anthony Browne It is a picture book in which a boy describes how amazing his dad is to him He talks about how his dad s capabilities are beyond what one could even imagine I loved how the illustrations clearly matched the descriptions of his dad This book could be used during a Father s Day activity so that kids can show appreciation for their father s or father figures It could also be used to teach students metaphors and similes I also liked how throughout the story, their were references made to different fairytales, and this could allow students to make text to text connections Overall, I think this was a nice book for early readers because it was easy to understand, the illustrations matched the words, and it is one that many children could relate to 5 5 stars After reading My Mum I wondered if there was a Dad equivalent, and there is I was dissapointed that this book followed the stereotypes of dads being fearless, strong etc and didn t take the opportunity to say his dad was good at cooking or any of the other stereotypical things he blessed his mum book with I think it s great that the mum was good at cooking but so should the dad be, or at least have a go at it.Read on open library.
