It’s Father’s Day this month so what better way to celebrate than by snuggling down with a book about your Number One Dad?
Daddy is my Hero
by Dawn Richards and Jane Massey
Daddy is my Hero is a beautifully illustrated rhyming book celebrating the relationship between father and child.
Daddy looks quite normal – just like the other dads in fact, but when he’s playing with his little one he can be a deep-sea diver, a knight, a cowboy, or even a spaceman!
This gorgeous paperback celebrates the fun times little ones have with their daddies, and it’s got a dose of realism too with mention of dad doing the shopping and cooking (oh, ok – that might still be fantasy for some people!), bathtime, bedtime stories and little ones getting in a strop (“sometimes I get cross with him, and sometimes there’s a fight… but I know my daddy loves me. I know he’s always there…”)
I love that the little child could be a boy or a girl, making it really relatable for all 0-4 year-olds. If this story doesn’t pull at your heartstrings you may very well not be human!
Daddy is my Hero is one of over 200 available in my 3 for £10 deal (its RRP is £6.99) and it’s one of my best-selling books.
