Counting on You: a gift idea for Father's Day
Writer, mum. Coffee lover @mammaknowssouth
With Father's Day rapidly approaching, you may be at a loss as to what you can get the kids Father or a sweet little gift for Granddad.
This little gem of a picture book is your answer.
Gorgeously illustrated with a padded hardback cover and limited colour palette, makes it the perfect gift for any age.
There is only one line spread across each page, but all six of the primary emotions are reflected; happiness/joy, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and love.
The underlying message here is that some days will be 'reaching for the sky days' and some may be 'days when I cry'. But whatever emotion the protagonist had been feeling, 'you' were always there.
The original concept for this delightful book was specifically designed as a Father's Day message; but it could also be adapted to any person that you love.
This really is a stunning book, written and illustrated by Melbourne creatives, and is sure to be a sentimental favourite to whomever is lucky enough to receive it.
