My Amazing Dad by Ezekiel Kwaymullina, illustrated by Tom Jellett, is a little book about loving your dad for who he is, rather than lament that he is not like other kids’ dads. This dad doesn’t mow lawns well, but he can make amazing mazes. He’s not great at baking cakes or fixing faucets, or doing many other handy things around the house, but he sure knows how to have fun with his kids.
While I liked the message of this book and the illustrations were vibrant enough, my daughter said the book was boring. What would have made it more fun for her, I think, would have been some textures for the maze pages or a tag line that the kids and the dad would say together when they played. Something to make it more engaging for her.
My Amazing Dad by Ezekiel Kwaymullina, illustrated by Tom Jellett, is a nice book with a good message, but for my daughter it wasn’t very engaging.
