Where were you when you read the book?
We were at home in the living room. I suggested story-time and Dylan came and sat in my lap.
What did you / your child enjoy about the book?
I remember walking into the living room after changing another nappy, chatting to my partner about when we could make a trip to the tip, looking her straight in the eyes and resignedly saying ‘I used to be cool’: I enjoyed the feeling of recognition I got from reading it.
My son really enjoyed the imagery and picked on certain elements / shapes that he’s currently very attached to (e.g. CAR!)
Any Surprises / Feedback?
It’s really lovely how each page literally illustrates the before / after of becoming a Dad – and when towards the end when pictures do speak a 1000 words, I was surprised about how emotional I got reading it. It was great seeing Dylan’s eyes light up on each page, and regularly picks it to be read to at bedtime now.
