Dad jokes. Know them? The ones that make your eyes roll and force you to emit a loud sigh?! Ensure Dad reads this one at bedtime!!
My Dad Thinks He’s Funny, from Katrina Germein and Tom Jellett, is a picture book full of great one-liners. Fun, light hearted entertainment. Love the changing size of the font which adds to the quirky nature of this book. Tom Jellet’s illustrations really fit the nature of the book. With a hand drawn quality to them, he really captures the facial expressions … personal favourite is ‘the eye roll’, outlined in 4 steps, a perfect reaction to the latest dad joke.
Children don’t always get humour straight away, but there’s plenty for everyone is this book. My five year old’s personal favourite?
“Whenever I go swimming, Dad says,’Try not to get wet!’ “
… should I be worried that he found that so funny?! A future dad in the making I think!
I am going to buy My Dad Thinks He’s Funny for one of my friends who is about to become a dad for the first time – I can hear the laughs already. It’s the perfect addition to our Best Father’s Day Books For Children collection.
