The Lovereading4Kids comment
A celebration of a blended family, My Dads successfully stresses the qualities of a little girl’s Dad and her Pa. She does quite different things with each of them – biking, painting and swimming – but what matters most is that they both love her!
My Dads by Kelly Bennett
Dad and Pa have one important thing in common in this gentle, uplifting account of one girl's blended family.
I have two fathers. I call them Dad and Pa. Dad is tall and wears suits. Pa is bald and wears boots. Dad's into gadgets and Pa's into plants; one paints on easels, the other on walls; and they certainly don't share the same taste in music!
In this affectionate celebration of blended families, a young girl explains why her dad and stepdad - though completely different - are exactly the same in one important way: they both love her very much. This is a celebration of what it can be like for a child to have two father figures - each with his own idiosyncrasies and different ways of making life fun. Over 10 per cent of all UK families with children are stepfamilies (2007 figures). Dad and Pa are neither the same, nor trying to be the same, but in the child's eyes they are equal.
