Norac, Carl: My Daddy is a Giant: For Everyone Who Has the Best Daddy in the World.

Norac, Carl MY DADDY IS A GIANT: For Everyone Who Has the Best Daddy in the World. Il. by Ingrid Godon. ISBN 0-618-44399-1. New York: Clarion Books, 2005. 32 pp. $16.00. A little boy's admiration for and love of his father is evident on every page of this book. Dad is larger than life, and even the size of the book accommodates dad's size. The reader is invited to view the father from the eyes of the boy. Dad's sneezes are as powerful as a hurricane and his running creates earthquakes, but in his arms there is nothing but safety. The childlike drawings and perspective reflect the story's point of view. This book would make a great Father's Day gift. Ages 3-7. Reviewed by Terre Sychterz, Kutztown University, Kutztown, PA
