Allen & Unwin, 2013. ISBN 9781743316238.
My Dad and me is a lovely story for parents to read to their children. The bright pictures are detailed and great for engaging children in discussion about what is going on. It is also a great way for children to develop new vocabulary. The rhyming text is catchy and I can imagine changing it into a song and singing along with the child. Parents and children could create their own rhyming sentences about things they do together. In the class, lower primary teachers could use this book as a lead up to Father's Day and older children could use it as a model to write their own 'Dad' poem.
