Review: My Dad is Beautiful

My Dad is beautiful. Why? Well, because he cooks me sausages in the morning. He watches tele with me. He lets me water the plants. And he always let me have ice cream.

My Dad is beautiful because he buys me comics - those ones with the stickers inside. And when he rides my scooter, he looks really silly.

Yes, my Dad is beautiful - because he loves me. And because he does all those little, precious things that make up the fondest, most wonderful childhood memories.

This a really sweet book for little ones - a loving relationship between a dad and his son. Simple, adorable illustrations and a central message that Dad is Dad - and that's plenty more than enough.
