Father really does know best

A touching story about a boy's relationship with his father for children ages 5-8.

Dad and the Dinosaurby Gennifer Choldenko
written for ages 7-10 | highly recommended
published in 2017 | G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers | 40 pages

Nicholas wants to be just like his father- fearless, but there are still things that frighten him:  the dark, insects, heights. To overcome his anxiety, he brings his toy dinosaur with him everywhere.
After soccer one day, the dinosaur is missing. How will Nicholas survive? When Dad arrives home later in the evening, Nicholas learns that his father understands and is willing to help.
Gennifer Choldenko’s tribute to fathers is a treasure. It captures the tenderness of a father’s love, the close bond he can have with his son and the admiration of a young boy for the most important role model in his life.

One could almost hear the lip-smacking in editors’ offices yesterday as police in the Australian state of Victoria announced that their countryman, Cardinal George Pell, had to answer charges of historical sex abuse. What a scalp to look forward to – a top-ranking cleric from that irritating historical hangover, the Catholic Church!
In truth, the enemies of George Pell have been on this case for a long time, and the “case” is even bigger than Pell himself, as Michael Cook’s fine article, posted on our website yesterday, shows. In a spirited defence of the Cardinal Michael writes:
The attacks on Pell ultimately stem from a loathing of the Church and its moral teachings amongst the left-leaning Victorian political establishment. At the moment it is in government, noisily campaigning for euthanasia and transgender rights and quietly gloating over the possibility of destroying Australia’s best-known Catholic.
For myself, I look forward to Cardinal Pell's vindication – and to the investigative journalism that will reveal in detail how this persecution of a good man was constructed.
