This is a MUST READ! The big, picture book has actual photos of fathers around the world as they interact with their children. I chose to add this book to my collection since it depicts a different side of dads. Often they are presented in a negative light and stereotyped as being absent or of a bad influential nature. However, there are many positive, proud fathers out there who play very active roles in their children's lives.

This book could be read to children to remind them of all the wonderful things their dads do for them. This book is more suited for the younger children. I would read this book before having students complete an activity for their parents in order to remind them of some nice things they could say about their parents. One could also read this story before Father's Day.

A very simple book. I liked that it focused on fathers. There isn't a "story", just a simple narrative about what fathers do with their children, accompanied by pictures of fathers and their children from cultures all over the world. Someone gave this to me when my (newly adopted) daughter were apart from her daddy for a few months.
