LoveReading View on Meet the Parents

Heart-warming and entertaining, this delightful hymn to the many and varied wonders of parents has some delicious jokes at its core. Sarah Ogilvie’s illustrations show family life splendidly as parents vigorously cover all the ground from mopping up and wiping down, easing social problems and soothing troubled feelings. Boisterous in spirit and visually.

Meet the Parents Synopsis

Kids may think their parents are only there to boss them around and tell them what to do. And there’s no getting away from it - parents do have to do quite a lot of that! But this brilliant picture book explains just some of the many other things mums and dads do to make life great, from helping out with building dens to mending toys and solving problems and, of course, giving plenty of cuddles and tickles.

Peter Bently’s rhyming text is woven throughout with Sara Ogilvie’s wonderful illustrations, revealing both the joy frustration of familiar childhood scenarios, and perfectly capturing the parent-child dynamic in a range of funny and heartwarming situations.
A real treat for parents and children to share - showing kids that mums and dads have to put up with things too!
