6 thoughts on “I Love My Dad Because…

  1. ‘I love my dad because’ is an interactive book where a child can draw, colour and invent their way through activities for and with their dad. It was a little ‘young’ for my two children, so I showed it to my almost-five year old niece and we sat down and did a few of the activities in preparation for giving it to her dad, and they can complete the rest together. The bright colours and variety of activities kept her attention and she loved tracing around her hand, making up a story about her dad and drawing pictures of herself and him., among other things.

    A delightful book that I’m sure will be treasured by Dads for years to come as a snap shot of their child’s imagination at this time. Perfect for Fathers Day for children up to about 6 or 7.
    Thanks to Pan MacMillan and Beauty and Lace for the opportunity to review this book.

  2. Thank you Beauty and Lace for the opportunity for my boy to read I love my Dad because.

    What a brilliant little book to bring Dad and son together for some interaction they normally wouldn’t get as this is just for them.
    A Beautifully illustrated book with places to draw ‘ dad and me’. Making stories together and playing games together.
    In my 7 year olds words “ I love everything about this book because it’s all about Dad”.

  3. ‘I Love My Dad Because’ is such a fabulous book for young children to personalise as a special gift for their dad. It’s full of gorgeous illustrations and activities for children to complete – with the final result being a unique and personal book that will be treasured for years to come.

    My 5 year old son needed support and guidance to complete, but really enjoyed the process and we happily worked together on the book over several days.

    Would make a great gift for Father’s Day, birthday or Christmas!

  4. This is such a gorgeous book for Dads and came just days before Father’s Day! My 4 kids helped fill in and decorate this book. It is super cute and so personalised. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to give their Dad a special something from the littlies.

  5. The perfect gift for Father’s Day. My nephew and niece loved completing the activities and decorating this book. The best part was the joy on their faces when they presented it to their dad.
    A beautiful memento and gift for any dad.
    Thank you Beauty and Lace and Pan Macmillan.

  6. My sons loved this book. And it came just in time for Father’s Day. While it only had space for one child to fill in, I got the boys the share the activities in the book. My husband loved it as a present.
