Some Dads...written and illustrated by Nick Bland. Scholastic, 2012. $14.99 ages 2 and up

"Some dads are sporty.
And some dads are naughty.
And some dads just brighten
your day."
Gosh, we're getting closer and closer to Father's Day and I wanted to tell you about Nick Bland/s new book. He helps his young readers honor the fact that all dads are different...and each one of them special in his own way. 

He uses his signature rhythmic language to give flow to the descriptions he shares, and ensures that readers and listeners will enjoy the time spent sharing this homage to that man in their lives. It is great fun to read out loud, and will leave all with a gentle, peaceful feeling about dads who worry, and hurry and even get lost along the way. No matter their favorite place to be or thing to do, they are always proud of their children.

Readers will get a chuckle from the antics of the playful fathers, their expressions and their exertions all meant to bring them closer to their children and to set an admirable example for them. Whether they are soaring or sweating, they are endearing. The details will bring young readers back repeatedly.
Dads are as different, and special, as their children are. Join in the celebration! If you think that a book about dads would be a great gift, here's one for you. .
