Summary from Little Tiger Press
Find out why each dad deserves his shiny star in this concentric, colourful book of giving.

Nayu's thoughts 
Published in time for Father's day in June this read is good at any time of the year! On every double page there's a child with their daddy who does something with or for them which makes them pleased and give him a star. The cut out stars get smaller and smaller, with a compassionate ending that made me go aww. I love the cute and vivid illustrations, especially when the lion parent has a lion toy looking just like him on a shelf! 

Each animal does an activity which best suits their nature, making it a good way to chat about animals, and also humans as we are all good at different things. The one thing in common is the love the children have for their fathers, which is huge, but not as much as the fathers love them. Possibly not an easy read for those without fathers or who have not so nice ones, but most readers will be able to relate to the feelings explored, and maybe try out a new hobby with their father.
