Children's books with dads as positive figures
11 years 1 month ago #1116
Do you know books for young children which have men in who are shown in a positive way? I read an article in the Times a while back discussing the idea that fathers in children's books are either thick, bad or not mentioned at all. I haven't been through all of our collection at the mo but so far the count hasn't even broken ten.
Hi Chaps - i'm actually thinking of writing a seriers of books were dads and their kids get to spend time together and bond around adventures. I like the book going on a bear hunt and me and J 5 and H 3 read it alot - we often go to the woods on bear hunts near our house but i was thinking we need more adventures. So far i'm thinking pirates, dragons, aliens but anyone got any other ideas.
think the series will be based around my 2 boys themselves, so watch this space.
PS anyone got any experiance of piublishing books?
