Fearless with my Dad by Cori Brooke

New Frontier Publishing, 2015. ISBN 9781925059403
(Age: 6+) Highly recommended. Fearless with my Dad is a beautiful picture book, following a young boy and his dad. Together they are pirates, flying like an eagle and travelling to the moon. The underlying theme is a child can be anything and do anything as long as they have their dad there to support them.
The beautifully illustrated text will engage younger readers and encourage new vocabulary as children and their carers discuss all the amazing adventures of this boy and his dad. Older readers could create their own version and the main character could be changed to a girl.
It would make a great gift for a father on Father's Day - no matter their age - but would be a great gift for a first time dad.
Highly recommended for all readers - whether they read it independently (aged 6+) or with a parent.
