Children from 2-5 will enjoy this book the most. This book is an extraordinary picture book, and deserves more than five stars. First, it has images that remind one of Matisse at his best. Second, the typography has the look of being printed by long hand, which gives the book a friendlier feel. Third, the choice of colors is dramatic and wonderful to behold. Fourth, the pages are oversize, which makes the book more accessible and appealing to young children. Fifth, the story itself is very funny and heart-warming at the same time. Sixth, the book also can double as a basic reader. Seventh, you can use the book to learn counting, as well. Eighth, you can give this book to single fathers as a Father's Day gift. Hard-working fathers who help around the house will also appreciate it. In either case, the father who receives it will be relieved to see that he has by being the parent of fewer than 10 children. As a result, I cannot remember a book that serves so many purposes. You should be strongly consider The Father Who Had 10 Children for purchase and years of reading pleasure. After you have finished reading the book, I suggest that parents think about how the chores and child-rearing tasks can be split and alternated so that the pleasure of variety will make each activity more fun! In that way, you can build on the lesson of the father in the book who missed helping his children after a day of lazing on his sailboat. May love and joy fill your family time!
