Short Review – My Dad, My Hero by Ethan Long

Spread the love

Stars: *****

Sourcebooks (2011)
Picture Book

A young child starts off this laugh-out-loud picture book by listing all the ways his dad is NOT a superhero: he can’t leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet, or shoot webs out of his wrists.
Each spread illustrates how Dad doesn’t have super powers but is still a hero at heart. The sweet ending depicts all the cool—if not super—activities Dad does do with the child, like throwing a baseball, playing checkers and going toy shopping. – from Sourcebooks

The perfect book for Father’s Day!

The illustrations are absolutely perfect and the story is funny. Younger kids will just enjoy the story while older kids will understand the jokes that are in the illustrations. A book that’s great for different age groups is always a plus. It’s even fun for moms to read!

Recommended for ages 3-8
