A little girl has two fathers, because her mother has married again. She calls one Dad, the other Pa. They are very different men, but in one important way they are exactly the same
'They both love me!' A charmingly illustrated story for children whose parents have remarried. Ages 3-9.
Dad and Pa have one important thing in common in this gentle, uplifting account of one girl's blended family. I have two fathers. I call them Dad and Pa. Dad is tall and wears suits. Pa is bald and wears boots. Dad's into gadgets and Pa's into plants; one paints on easels, the other on walls; and they certainly don't share the same taste in music! In this affectionate celebration of blended families, a young girl explains why her dad and stepdad - though completely different - are exactly the same in one important way: they both love her very much. This is a celebration of what it can be like for a child to have two father figures - each with his own idiosyncrasies and different ways of making life fun. Over 10 per cent of all UK families with children are stepfamilies (2007 figures). Dad and Pa are neither the same, nor trying to be the same, but in the child's eyes they are equal.
