    This book made me smile inside and out. Being a parent is the hardest job on earth. This book shows how a dad teaches his son how to be a responsible, intelligent, and loving person which should be the goal of every parent. The dad is a man of few words, but what he says he means and his son knows this from example. This sweet story of a young boy growing up with his beloved father will remind the adult readers that their children are watching and listening to them as examples of adulthood. Parents are the first teachers and are responsible for making sure their children learn the most important life lessons and this book does a fabulous job of presenting this idea.

    This picture book with cute illustrations is all about a black father and his son and the ‘job’ of teaching his son to be a man. A sweet story showing the child growing, eager to learn but not realising until he turns 18, that he has been learning all this time.

    In My Dad’s Job by Deedee Cummings and Erika Busse, the focal point follows a father-son mentoring relationship throughout the son’s development from child to young adult. “Show, don’t tell” is one of the first lessons taught in creative writing courses. In this story, it becomes a theme in the son’s education as the father leads by example. The anticipation builds as the story continues as does the clarification from the father with regard to letting his son (and the readers) know more about the method by which he is mentoring the son. This gives readers an opportunity to work out the message for themselves, making it clearer and clearer until it is spelled out.
