Cute Storybook For Kids And Their Dads

I love the message of this book. It's pretty near impossible to be perfect, but there are plenty of other ways to be awesome for your kids. I see books all the time focused on moms and kids, but I don't see books about dads and kids very often so I think this one is pretty awesome! I'm already tucking things away for grandchildren one day, and this book is getting tucked into a tote with some other story books to create a Baby's First Library at Grandma's house.

Parents aren't perfect, but no matter their weaknesses or strengths they are all pretty great. I loved reading My Amazing Dad by Ezekiel Kwaymullina with my niece and nephew. My own kids are too old for picture books now, but my sister has three little ones under the age of 8 that I still enjoy reading to.

Reading with my kids has always been one of the most important, and rewarding, parts of parenting for me. I've read all kinds of things with my kids. Of course, we started with Sesame Street, Golden Books and Dr. Suess when they were old enough to even look like they might be able to understand what I was saying — practically from birth! LOL

My oldest daughter's favorite book when she was between the ages of about 3-5 was The Three Little Pigs. She didn't only want me to read that book to her ever single night, but at least 2-3 times every single night. Needless to say, that is going to be a must-give gift someday when she gets married and is expecting her first baby, for sure.

My son has never been a big reader of novels. It was especially a struggle in elementary and middle school because the school participated in the Accelerated Reader Program where they take little tests on books they read and it's a part of their reading grade. He did get interested in R.L. Stine books, but after a while he'd read them all. He brought home a book, once, called Hatchet by Gary Paulsen that we read together. He liked it so well that I bought the other books in the series for his birthday and Christmas that year. But, he was more attracted to comic books, video game walkthroughs, and video game/technology magazines. Hey, maybe it ain't Great Expectations or War and Peace, but I'll take it.

The point is that two out of three of my kids are major bookworms, like me. And I credit all of the hours we spent reading everything from kids' books to comics, classic to contemporary novels, and print magazines to online articles together. It doesn't matter so much what you read to (or with) your kids, but just that you do read with them. It expands their world so much and they learn wonderful and fun things while knowing you care enough to spend your most precious commodity, time, with them.

My Amazing Dad by Ezekiel Kwaymullina


This dad is not like other dads. He is not good at:

Mowing the lawn,
Getting his children to school on time,
Baking cakes,
Fixing a leaky faucet, or
Remembering bed time

But, he is good at:

Making mazes,
Getting his children to school eventually,
Eating cakes,
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 everyday into something special.
