Witty and reflective, a good laugh for all!
This brilliantly illustrated story plays with role reversal in a series of hilarious scenarios. It fosters reconnection through play and learning to appreciate each other by considering different perspectives.
Anna’s dad is late again! He’s always looking at his phone and ignores her when he’s talking. He watch’s the news instead of playing and often just says NO!
But what would happen if he were in her shoes? A School for Dad’s, that might sort him out.
Anna’s Dad had forgotten how hard the floor was. It suddenly seemed quite unfair for the teacher to have a padded chair. No more adult liberties, no sweet treats at lunchtime, no getting out of exercise.
Art class was more engaging than dad remembered. Everyone had fun together.
The dad’s were just like kids inside, the children saw to their surprise.
Having fun was really easy. Being responsible took a lot more control.
The kids began to understand that it’s sometimes hard to be a dad.
Anna begins to balance up things, like being late, with the great things her dad does with her.
My favourite page shows each child sharing something special about their dad.
Doing things together no matter how small, helps kids feel wanted, happy and loved.
Clever, multicultural and light-hearted. School for Dads will bring back memories of childhood antics on skateboards and bikes. It’s the kind of feel-good book which will inspire adventures together and certainly become a favourite story to enjoy.BUY – SCHOOL FOR DADS
