My Dad My Hero is a heart warming book written from a little boy’s persepective.  It is about the boy’s father.  The dad is not just any dad, well- actually he is any dad.  He is a tough guy, who tries his best, but still fails sometimes.  Fixing things, opening jars and in general doing stuff a ‘dad’ would do.  But as most real ‘dads’ do, sometimes he doesn’t do them super-well.  But he does try and make everyone as happy as can be.  And this is why the little guy in the book loves his dad so much.  Its the time and effort he puts into it, not neccessarily the outcome.  It was very nice reading this book to my little guy (cuter still was watching daddy read it to him), it was just long enough to keep his attention, get the point across and still have a theme.  The illustrations were also nice on the eyes, bright colors and easily reconizable situations and events.  What parent hasn’t been trying to tidy up the yard and had to tussle with a bee, ending in running and yelping like a wounded puppy? LOL.   I know I have done similar things, and so has Little’s daddy, and I laughed about it while reading the book.
The author/ illustrator of the book is: Ethan Long.  You may recognize his illustrating style from Disney Jr’s show:   Tasty Time with Ze Fronk.  It is nice to see a unique illustrator expand into different mediums.  In addition to My Dad My Hero, Mr. Long wrote a plethora of other books, more than fifty actually.
Give this book a shot if you are trying to create a little father son time, you won’t regret it.
