May 2017 Debut of the Month

This charming picture book delivers messages that children always need to hear: that daddy loves them no matter what they do; that grown-ups are playful and sometimes silly too; that everyone makes mistakes, and if things do go wrong, it’s not the end of the world. These invaluable bits of information are wrapped up in a heart-warming story that celebrates the love a child feels for Daddy, and the special fun they have together. It’s warm, tender and reassuring, and Lucy Freegard’s illustrations are full of life and vitality too. Perfect for Father’s Day, this will be fun to read on any day of the year. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Just Like Daddy by Lucy Freegard

Who wouldn't want to be just like daddy, when daddy is strong and silly, kind and practical? But he also knows how to have fun, and even if he messes up, it's never a big deal. Dad can deal with the scariest of monsters (well, spiders at least...), keeps his eyes open on the rollercoaster (most of the time), and puts on all the silly voices when he reads a bedtime story.
