The Lovereading4Kids comment

This child’s-eye view of the father-child relationship is very touching and will strike a chord in all families. Little elephant looks up to Dad – literally – and each spread describes something Dad can do because he’s bigger, whether that’s making dinner, going to the shops or just hanging up their coats. The simple rhyming text, supported by warm, cosy illustrations, captures the sense of love between parent and child, and on one of the final spreads Dad kneels down low so that little elephant can hug and hold him tight, ‘when he is short and I’m his height’. ~ Andrea Reece

There should be more books like this: in bright, appealing illustrations it tells children how people of different faiths cover their heads to show their love for God. This beautifully illustrated, board book aims to teach children, parents and educators about the shared custom of head covering across the Jewish, Sikh, Christian, Rastafarian, and Islamic faiths. Hats of Faith helps prepare young children for our culturally diverse, modern world and encourages tolerance and understanding.

Synopsis

My Dad Will Do by Martin Thomas

It's not easy being small. Especially not being able to reach things. Like the hook to hang a coat, a shelf to get the toys, or the pedals of a bike. Kitchen sides, the shower, and a light switch are all too high. But the love of a father is an amazing thing. With dad close by anything is possible. With dad close by nothing is out of reach.
