My Dad is a Grizzly Bear

Publisher: Macmillan

The dad in this book is very bearish: he eats all the honey, chases his little boy around while growling and naps everywhere – especially at the cinema. This grizzly bear dad can run faster than a bus, growls loudly when he sings karaoke and catches fish fingers in his teeth; plus, he’s got a big beard, exactly like a bear. When dad decides everyone is going on a camping trip, he’s in his grizzly bear element in the woods – but the woods can be scary when you’re little, and there’s no better bear hug than from your grizzly bear dad to make you feel safe.

A charming book celebrating all the bear-like dads out there who like eating, snoring and roaring and featuring a mixed race family, this is a lovely story that will bear repeat reads.
