Some Dads

Nick Bland. Running Press, $9.95 (24p) ISBN 978-0-7624-6199-8
This warmhearted tribute to fathers, originally published in Australia, highlights the distinctive personalities of a group of anthropomorphic animal parents. “There are some dads who worry./ And some dads who hurry./ And some dads who get lost on the way,” writes Bland as an elephant father fills a swimming pool with life preservers while his daughter prepares to dive in, polar bears race downhill on skis, and a pair of marooned cows clings to a buoy under a night sky. With lively humor and sensitivity, Bland suggests that, while no two dads are exactly the same, they’re united by their love for their children. Ages 3–6. (May)
