‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

' "It’s time for bed," my Daddy said.
"Just five more minutes play".
"Then let’s pretend we’re animals!"
Is what he hears me say'.
It is time for bed, but a little boy asks his dad for five more minutes of playtime so that they can pretend to be different animals. With simple rhymes and engaging illustrations this is a collection of animal ‘daddies’ that includes rhinos, monkeys, lions, hippos, kangaroos, and giraffes. The little boy recites a rhyme for each animal about the fun things they do together.
" My daddy is a hippo,
He really loves to swim.
When we jump into the water,
Nothing else fits in!"
Some of the humorous rhymes are punctuated with animal noises which young children will love to join in with. This entertaining book with large double-page artwork by Slovenian author and illustrator Lila Prap are bold and colourful. Her distinctive style will engage any young child at bedtime and the playful rhymes will be fun for parents to read; in particularly, a great bedtime book for fathers and sons to share.
