Bear cubs, Obi and Nadia, are throwing a surprise party for their sleepy (but amazing) dad. They’ve got balloons to blow up, cakes to make, and they’ve invited all of their woodland friends and family.

This rhyming, riotous picture book is perfect for sharing together and ends with a heart-warming celebration of dads and all the amazing things they do!

  1. “Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.”


  1. “It is a wise father that knows his own child.” – William Shakespeare


  1. “Be a dad. Don’t be Mom’s Assistant…Be a man…Fathers have skills that they never use at home. You run a landscaping business and you can’t dress and feed a four-year-old? Take it on. Spend time with your kids…It won’t take away your manhood, it will give it to you.” ― Louis C.K.


  1. Hugh Grant on fatherhood

‘It’s just lovely to have all that love around. Suddenly you love someone more than yourself. It’s unheard of in my case. And they love you, and it’s all enchanting.’


  1. James Corden

‘When we had our son it put everything in perspective, and I felt I wanted to work as hard as I can because I want to give him the best start possible in life. Having a son has given me a great sense of clarity. You get into your house and shut the door and it’s lovely to be greeted by this person who’s become the most important thing. It’s amazing.’


  1. “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.” – Mark Twain


  1. “I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.” – Umberto Eco


  1. “Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father.” – Barack Obama


  1. “Every father should remember one day his son will follow his example, not his advice.” – Charles Kettering
