Review: Me and My Dad

This little bear idolises his Dad. After all, this is a father who plays games, goes exploring, spins his little bear around and tells night-time stories.

The little one says, “My dad is the best daddy bear there could be” and no one could argue with that. Doesn’t every child think that about their dad?

This is a beautiful story, written in lovely rhyme and demonstrating the special things about dads.

The highlight of this book, though, is the illustration.

One glance at these pictures will have you feeling all comfy and warm, wanting to give the bears a big cuddle. They are so animated and full of character that you feel they may just jump off the page and run around your lounge room, dancing and spinning into life.

This is a lovely story for dads to share with their little ones and a reminder of why fathers are so special.
