116 - I Love My Dad; Anna Walker

I am always on the lookout for adorable children's books, and did I find a cute one at the library recently. I Love My Dad, by Anna Walker is such a sweet book.  In this story Ollie, the adorable zebra, his dog Fred, and Ollie's Dad love being together. Ollie likes to help his Dad paint the fence; they love banana bread, climbing in trees and playing hide and seek. Ollie especially loves when his Dad give him a piggyback ride to bed. 

The story is told in simple rhyme, and the size is great for toddlers to tote around too. The author, Anna Walker has illustrated this book, and it's perfect. Simple scenes in colored ink on white make the striped zebras pop, and vivid accent colors, like a red slide, red bicycle and colorful birds in the trees provide excellent contrast.

This book would make a sweet gift for from child to Dad for birthdays, Father's Day etc. RECOMMENDED
