This dad is not like other dads. He is not good at:
Mowing the lawn,
Getting his children to school on time,
Fixing a leaky faucet, or
Remembering bed time
But, he is good at:
Getting his children to school eventually,
Making bubble baths, and
Telling bedtime stories.
And this is what makes him so special.
With bright illustrations from award-winning illustrator Tom Jellett and minimal text by award-nominated Ezekiel Kwaymullina, My Amazing Dad celebrates the unconventional father who may not always get it right but certainly knows how to turn every day into something special.
My Amazing Dad is a short but fun to read hardcover picture book with a sweet message that not all Dads are good at everything but all dads are amazing in the eyes of their children. This is a great reminder to Dad’s everywhere that you don’t have to be perfect. Your kids won’t care that you aren’t a handy man. What they will remember is all the time you spent with them, and that is what makes you an amazing dad.
