Dads get their worth acknowledged here. Fabulous book which is beautifully illustrated. Our son loves it and goes very silly when it reaches the end where the narrator (a small boy) talks about how much he loves his Dad and how much his Dad loves him.
The Dad in our house always gets a big hug at the end of this one.

This is a beautifully illustrated book,and the top favorite of my 15 month old son! It's easy to read aloud because it flows in a lovely sing-song manner, and each page has subtle new surprises hidden in the illustrations so story time doesn't get boring fo adults.

I bought this for my Mr on behalf of our little girl for fathers day. This is a really lovely heart warming book and yet amusing at the very same time. Even the daddy in our lives had a little giggle at the different images.
I can already imagine her thinking all these different things about her daddy when shes older. I think thats the magic of this book really, its what every child thinks about their fathers.
My daughter loves to look at the pictures over and over after we have read the book to her, and im sure this will be a firm favourite in our selection of bedtime books, and its a really good price aswell.
Oh don't let the fact the book features a boy at the end if you have a little girl in your life put you off. I almost did and im glad i decided against it. The image is literally the dad hugging a child with short hair and i don't think children would mind anyway. Buy it:)

I got this book for fathers day from my over sentimental wife, sorry son, it is great.

I remember thinking that my dad was as big as a house and that must be how my young chap sees me ( though I do admit I have gained a few pounds round the middle which won't help!).

The writing is simple and has lots of repetition which is just what young children need to help them on the ladder of learning to read.

the pictures are fun and enhance the story without taking it over completely.

A great book. I like, my son likes it. I can't ask for more.

one thing though as the story is told from the point of view of a young boy (as shown on the last picture) it will not be quite as relevant for young girls.

Beautiful, heartwarming book from Anthony Browne. Touching, funny, and guaranteed to make dads feel good about themselves when shared with a small child. The illustrations alone, are worth the price of the book. The ultimate feelgood reading experience.

I bought this book when we started to read my daughter her bedtime story. Now it is the nighttime ritual. She won't go to bed without it being read first and knows it off by heart. The best bit is the end - any dad who reads this to their kids and doesn't get a lump in their throats at the end isn't human! A must have book for parents with young children

Brings tears to my eyes every time I read it to my young children. A fantastic book which they love and ask me to read it over and over again. Watch out for the clever pictures that have hidden items that match the text.

My three year old son just loves this book and has done almost since he was able to listen to a story. A celebration of Dads and how wonderful they are....at everything.
