What Does Daddy Do?

By: Rachel Bright

Daisy goes to Little Nippers Nursery where she plays with her friends, Dexter, Evie and Bob. They talk about lots of important things. One day they talk about daddies. Dexter’s daddy is a fireman, Evie’s is a doctor and Bob’s is a teacher. Daisy has a think about what her daddy does. He has mountains of paperwork, always has to fly and his boss is a real dragon. Is it possible that her daddy is an Explorer Super Knight!

This is a really adorable book. The text is imaginative and charming. Adults as well as kids will get to laugh about it. It is the perfect book to share with daddy or even about daddy. The illustrations are big, bold and appealing. It may be early in the year but this is a front runner for my father’s day recommend of the year.

Some Dads

By: Nick Bland

Dads all over are very different, that is what this book celebrates.

Nick Bland’s humour is on display in this wonderful celebration of fatherhood.

The text is simple and the illustrations absolutely adorable. This is a wonderful idea for Father’s day or any day really in which you want to enjoy the bond between father and child. If my kids were younger this is the sort of book I would love to share with them. Best suited to really young children.

Dr Xargles Book of Earth Relations

By: Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross

It turns out that there are all sorts of things to learn about Earth families, or at least there is if you are a student of Dr Xargle. The great, green alien teacher has a lot of things to tell you. For instance some earthlings are smelly and dangerous, some are sneaky and shriek, others are made of crumply material and put hedgehogs in their fur.

This is a very funny picture book full of familiar images that are presented from a very different perspective. The silly, simple and colourful illustrations add to the comedy and help make this a real fun read.
