The Dad Who Didn't Know: Encouraging children to accept help from others.
This beautifully conceived bedtime story tells the tale of Dad as he winds himself up in knots thinking that he should know everything! Learn how his loving family helps him find peace. Lovingly and humorously illustrated, this book is for a slightly older age group of 7 - 10. This book will help children tap into their Inside World and to understand that they need not have the answer to every question in order to be peaceful.
The book ends with a reflective exercise called Sail the Seas of Knowledge, where children can explore the types of questions with which they are presented daily. This is a deeply liberating story that you can lean on in the moments when you don't know, (but think you should!)
'Wow, what a relief for dads to realize that they don't have to know! How empowering it must be for children to know that they can help dad just by being themselves, The power in this book comes from dad and child reading together, sparking the conversation that leads to a deeper connection,'
