LoveReading View on I Love You Dino-Daddy

The characters may be green and dinosaur-shaped, but this is all about the special fun little children have with their daddies, and the particular love between father and child.  A dino-dad, distinctive in his stripy tie and lace-up shoes, plays exuberantly with two little dino-tots, in the park, in the garden and even when he should be working (Dino Warning, reads the message on his computer, 3000 urgent emails)! Sam Lloyd’s illustrations are a hoot and catch all the energy and high spirits of the dino characters, while Mark Sperring’s rhyming text is great fun to read aloud. A must-have for dino-families everywhere!  ~ Andrea Reece


I Love You Dino-Daddy Synopsis

It's not easy being a dino-daddy, but it's definitely a lot of fun! And whether it's a trip to the park or playing games at home, Dino-Daddy always has time for his two roaring little dinos ... The park would never be such fun without him standing by. No one can spin you faster - weeeeeeee! - or swing you quite so high! And though he has a list of jobs he has to dino-do, He always seems to have the time to play a game ... or two! Morning, noon and night,

Dino-Daddy is the best, and life in the dino family is just as fun (and chaotic) as ever. The perfect present for Father's Day!
