Dad: The Man, the Myth, the Legend - Mifflin Lowe (Illustrated by Dani Torrent)

Hey!  Father's Day is coming up (June 20, if you're reading this in 2021) and I just wanted to pop in  for a brief review that you might find relevant. 

Summary:  He's the most interesting man in the world.  He changes diapers just because he likes it.  He's counted to infinity -- twice!  He's stronger than Sasquatch, smarter than Einstein, and he cooks a mean spaghetti with M&M's for all your bad days.

He's a myth.  He's a legend.  He's...Dad!

Dad: The Man, the Myth, the Legend is an epic -- and totally unexaggerated -- tale for dads everywhere!  heroic, hilarious, and heartwarming, it's the sweet saga of Dad: protector, provider, and child's best friend.  

And it's all true.  Right, Dad?

My Review:   Do your littles idolize their father?  If so, they have a lot in common with the young narrator of Dad: The Myth, the Man, the Legend who can't help but sing his father's praises, even if some of his claims are a little far-fetched.  Can Dad really fly?  Is he really more powerful than Thor?!  In his son's eyes, Dad is every bit the hero as he conquers the challenges of fatherhood.  

I don't have little boys, so I can only imagine the day-to-day father-son dynamic, but I thought this book was pretty stinkin' cute as it conveyed both the hero-worship of a son and the many valuable roles a father fills.  The story and illustrations are entertaining for young and old, though more astute readers will pick up on nuances of humor that are certainly placed for parental appreciation.  The book ends on a high note with tender final message and a place for your child to make a list of all the things that make their own Dad so amazing.  Overall, I believe that Dad: The Man, the Myth, the Legend would make a fun Father's Day gift that both Dad and little one can enjoy.  

My Rating:  3.75 Stars

For the Sensitive Reader:  Should be fine as long as there's a Dad in your life that you adore.
