Say hello to Marvin Hamilton Jnr. (his friends call him Marv for short), he's just like you. He likes to run and play with his friends, and giggle when one of them makes a 'crackle'. In fact, the only difference between you and Marv might be that Marv doesn't have a Dad. It's Father's Day, read along to discover how Marv enlists the help of his family to turn this potentially sad occasion into a celebration!
Father's Day is an illustrated story for children (ages 4-8) that explores the absence of a Father in one little boy's life. Written for the author's own nephew as an aid to help him understand that every family is different, this story has touched the hearts of all children and parents alike.
Father's Day also celebrates the 'new norm' of non-traditional family structures and offers a modern-day, more realistic alternative to the 'nuclear family' cliche.
Funny, charming and moving.
I loved this book, it's so funny, poignant, and touching, covering a real issue for some children in a cute but relevant way, with a lovely payoff. it brought a tear to my eye. Beautifully written and beautifully illustrated. Highly recommended for all.
