I Love You Dad

I Love You Dad

This book has a slightly different mood to the more rough-and-tumble books we are reviewing today.

Here, the focus is on the emotional bond between a father and their child, and the book’s message really helps dads to bond with their child. Especially between the ages of 2 and 4, when dad can feel a little bit left out, this book can be great for re-kindling that special connection!

The story revolves around two bears – a dad and a son. The father bear encourages his son to start doing things as he becomes old enough to do them, and the little bear responds by trying to tell his father that he loves him.

The book is truly heart-warming!

PROS
  • The graphic design of this book looks a little old-fashioned nowadays, but we would prefer to call it “classic”! The illustrations are really beautiful, and more detailed than with many modern books. The hand-drawn feel also helps children to gain an appreciation for drawing that other books do not.
  • The language used here is a little more complex than some of the other books we have reviewed today, but this in itself has great advantages. Some of the parents we talked to had been reading this book to their kids for years without them getting bored, and each time it is read a child will understand and learn new words!
  • The illustrations in this book are really detailed, which means that your little one will have fun finding new things in the pictures every time you read through.
  • And even when your child grows up a bit, this book can still be used – some of the parents we talked to were still using this book to teach their children to read. If the book lasts long enough after being read so many times, it will eventually be your child reading it to you!
CONS
  • The book is printed in a traditional way – that is, with standard paper. This is great for older children, who often need practice to turn pages and handle a book, but can mean that the book is destroyed by your toddler’s sticky fingers!
