Hug a Bull – An Ode to Animal Dads

Colourful, cheerful and definitely a portfolio for discussion with your children, Hug A Bull, will achieve its objective in that the words are clear and easy to see, the pictures are fun and the context can bring a smile to the lips.

Not one to read before bedtime as the why, what, why, will achieve the direct opposite of what you require but perhaps one for a rainy day when there is time for discussion

The illustrations in this book aimed at very little people learning to read are great and help illuminate what is a very confusing look at the correct words for the male or the”Dads” of the animal kingdom. The intent is good but as a person who has read a many, many books to little people I find the concept a little bit too abstract.

Colourful, cheerful and definitely a portfolio for discussion with your children, which perhaps could be the intent, it will achieve its objective in that the words are clear and easy to see, the pictures are fun and the context can bring a smile to the lips.

As a learning concept it does introduce children to the gender specific species names which will create a canvas for discussion.

Not one to read before bedtime as the why, what, why, will achieve the direct opposite of what you require but perhaps one for a rainy day when there is time for discussion and at the end of it all, a huge, massive, hug for the male of the species, who after all should be the one reading the book to the little people of the household!
