Favorite Dads in Children’s Books
Who are your favorite dads in children’s books?
One of mine is Trixie’s dad in Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems. Trixie and her dad take a trip to the Laundromat. All goes well until they leave and Trixie realizes they left her beloved bunny behind. Pre-verbal Trixie tries to communicate what’s bothering her and expresses herself the only way she can - by going “boneless” and crying. Eventually her dad realizes that Trixie’s beloved knuffle bunny is missing and he returns to the Laundromat, searching until he finds it. Parents and children will recognize themselves in this very real story. Even though dad doesn’t want Trixie to get fussy what he wants most is to understand what’s upset her so much.
