Does your dad measure up? Blog tour day 9

Click to see My Little Bookcase’s fabulous ‘A Dad Who Measures Up’ project

DAY NINE. My Little Bookcase uses the Davide Cali/Anna-Laura Cantone classic, A Dad Who Measures Up, as the springboard for an exploration of what makes Dad special. You won’t believe the lengths they go to!

Says blogger Jackie Small:

This is a beautiful book about the importance of fathers. It highlights the importance of being loved and showered with kindness. Most importantly, Davide has written a story for all children to enjoy. Whether they are from single parent families, separated families, blended families or nuclear families, they will be able to relate.

The blog is also running a competition to win a SIGNED copy of A Dad Who Measures Up, which you can enter here.

My Little Bookcase celebrates the value of a traditional book, the joys of reading and quality time shared between parent and child. It is an online resource where you can find a wealth of information to encourage a love of reading in your child; it is a community for parents and caregivers to share their own ideas and experiences; it is a case full of inspiring ideas for reading and sharing books with your child.

The Davide Cali blog tour is taking place from 1 to 15 May, as a countdown to Davide’s first visit to Australia from 16 to 28 May. Every day, some of Australia’s most interesting book bloggers will be posting interviews with him, reviewing his books, offering giveaways and maybe giving a sneak peak of his award-winning new book, 10 Little Insects.

You can check out the full blog tour here.
