Because I’m Your Dad

Because I’m Your Dad Review

A really heart-warming book, where the things that matter – mucking around, eating ice-cream, and jumping about, are at the forefront!

This book is our choice because, in short, it is really fun. Perhaps it doesn’t have the heart-felt emotion of some of the other books in this review, but it is a real scream to read and get creative with.

The story focuses on a monster dad and his child. The dad is permissive, to say the least, allowing his child to do anything he wants, because, as the title says, “I’m your Dad”!

The parents we talked to seem to really engaged with this book, and said that their children did to. At its heart is a story about fatherly affection, and the length a dad will go to for his child, and as such overflows with joy.

PROS
  • The character design here is really great, and the dads we talked to really responded to it. The energetic pictures are just right for the rough and tumble relationship that many dads have with their children, and many found that they could really empathize with the central characters, even if they are monsters!
  • The story is written in a very appealing way, using simple but affectionate language, which can be a real help when your child is learning how to talk. The jokes are also pretty funny, meaning that dad will not get bored reading the book, no matter how many times he has to repeat it!
  • The love that overflows from this book, though, is really its greatest asset. If dad has to be away for long periods at a time, this is the perfect book to reassure your little one of what their dad is for!
  • The robust design of this book will ensure that it lasts a long time, no matter how many times it is read!
CONS
  • Some found the last page of this book, “because that’s what my dad did for me”, a little awkward. However, even those who did admitted that they could easily change what they said when they reached that page, and that the response of their child to rest of the book made it worth it!
