5 stars for Shani and Her Dad by @ShaniTNight #childrensbooks #kidlit #picturebooks #bookreview

Title: Shani and Her Dad (Shani and Friends Book 3)

Author: Shani T Night

Genre: Children’s Fiction, Children’s Picture Books

Book Blurb:

Shani and Friends is a series full of a six-year-olds adventure with friends at school as well as her own adventures at home. Shani just discovered her mom has to work all weekend and her dad will have to style her hair. Can her dad pull this off? Or will this be a day they both regret?

My Review:

Six-year-old Shani doesn’t know what to do. Her mother has to work all weekend so she must ask her dad to do her hair. But Dad has never done it before. He’s a boy, after all. Will he know what to do? He’ll try his best and then Shani will see if it is a disaster or not.

Shani and Her Dad is an adorable story about parents, kids, and expectations. While the feelings of unease and nervousness are portrayed well, the author adds a bit of humor, too. Children from every background will relate to this story. The parental dynamics are realistic and will be easy for kids to understand Shani’s trepidation. The story flowed and the illustrations, once again, partnered well with the story. An excellent picture book for storytime. Highly recommend!

My Rating: 5 stars
