Nick Bland has quite a formidable reputation when it comes to children's picture books. When researching the ideal books for our Father's Day list, Nick's name shot straight to the top.
Across each double page of Some Dads... Nick Bland completes the sentence .... with the aim of celebrating diversity. Bland succeeds in creating a book which isn't too schmultzy or predictable.
'There are some dads who worry.
And some dads who hurry.'
From rock n rolling to being naughty Bland covers a variety of traits guaranteed to gain a smile.
Using acrylics on paper he has created a range of vibrant illustrations showcasing a plethora of characters from the animal world. All of which are as lively as the text accompanying them.
Sometimes Dads... is an adorable picture book from an award winning author. It is the perfect addition to our Father's Day List.
