Hey Dad, you’re great

Corinne Fenton, with stock illustrations
black dog books [Walker Books Australia]
ISBN: 9781922244864           RRP: $18.95

This book pays tribute to some of dads’ most endearing qualities – telling tall tales, giving squeezy hugs and snoring like a thunderstorm - using stock photographs of animals with their young to illustrate. Most appealing about this book is its greeting card nature, and while I’m not a fan of giving children’s books as gifts to parents and grandparents, its sentiments would give dads that specially loved feeling on a special day.
