The new bedtime reading book of choice is another Flying Eye publication, My Dad Used to Be So Cool by Keith Negley.
From the man behind the equally wonderful Tough Guys Have Feelings Too! book, this is the story of a dad and his son. A story that perhaps rings true to more of us than you imagine.
In wonderfully distinctive and colourful illustrations, we see that a new father isn’t quite as ‘cool’ as he once was. The music equipment and the motorcycle are still there, but unused, with the father looking back wistfully on his past when they were the focus of his life.
But that’s only half the story. As we find out, his young son still thinks he’s the coolest man on the planet.
It’s so cute, it tells a story many dads can relate to and it’s a great little tale to enjoy with your small children too. The book is also just a nice ting to own too – the almost retro illustration on the front literally jumps off the shelf!
If you want one in your life, the book is available now and selling for £8.39 on Amazon.
