You made me a Dad by Laurenne Sala

Illus. by Mike Malbrough. Harper Collins US, 2019. ISBN: 9780062396945. 32pp., hbk.
From the time a man first discovers his partner is pregnant, the bond between father and child begins to grow and this relationship is celebrated in this charming book. From the time of the first baby bump through to camping out beneath the stars, the father shares his joy and his wonder and his gratitude at being able to guide and share the life of his little one, the big occasions and the not-so.
Perfect for a dad to give to his child on a special occasion, this is a companion to You Made Me A Mother and turns the tables on the usual format of the story being told by the child about the dad.
