Review: Daddies are Great

From front cover to back, Polona Lovšin’s illustrations are delicious. I couldn’t resist flicking from page to page to see what gorgeous dog family would star next. Add Meredith Costain’s succinct summary of so much that is wonderful about dads and you have the perfect tale about fathers.

Daddies are Great shows how dads of every shape play, give shoulder rides and quietly protect their family. What is not said is as powerful as each carefully chosen word. Dad’s never ending smile, and his size echoed in my heart long after the story is set aside and I find myself coming back for another peek.

Whether it’s for Fathers Day or a bedtime story, Daddies are Great will be a family favourite, especially when Dad is away.
