Synopsis

My Dad's Beard by Zanib Mian

A book about an adorable little boy's love for his father, personified through his beard. From tickly kisses and symbols of refuge, to how it looks at different times of the day, and makes him even more handsome; the character expresses his amusing thoughts and heartfelt sentiments of his father's beard. He shares the reasons why Grandma, Mum and his little sister love it too! Bold and colourful illustrations focus on the faces of the characters, and the text on each page is displayed creatively, as if written by the child using a variety of different methods. A warm and loving family. A perfect picture book to read aloud, or for small children to read to themselves time and time again.

Reviews

'This is a celebration of the child's dad's beard - how tickly it is, how it looks in the morning and when wet, how it's different from uncle's and granddad's, and all the reasons the child likes it because it's part of his Dad. This is a warm and loving family and an unusual topic: a useful book to have in the library.' - The School Librarian 'My Dad's Beard is a brilliantly illustrated, funny and cute story, about a little boy's love for his father.' -Families Magazine 'My Dad's Beard'

's book. It is funny, original, has wonderful illustrations and would be a fantastic addition to any bookshelf. I'd highly recommend it for teachers, parents and families.' - Phil Mcintosh, Year 2 teacher.'
