Big Brave Daddy by Smiljana Coh

 Charlie is a little boy. He loves his Dad, and his Dad can do some amazing things. Charlie only swims in the bathtub, but his Dad can go deep sea diving. Charlie can sled down the hill, but his Dad can go skiing down mountains. There are so many things that Charlie's big brave Daddy can do - and one day they are going to do those things together.

 This is a lovely, funny book about how children often look up to their parents through adoring eyes. I love how the book doesn't just catalog all of the things that Daddy can do; it also looks forward to the day when Charlie and his Daddy can do them together. Being a father isn't just about being able to do amazing things - it also involves teaching and nurturing your children. This is a great addition to any collection of books that look at positive relationships between parents and children.
