Our Shed: A Father-Daughter Building Story

We rated this book:


The story of Our Shed by Robert Broder is explained in the full title; it is a father-daughter building story. I really enjoyed seeing my husband read this story to our two daughters. The story takes through a father and daughter building a shed together, but it is also a story about the relationship between the father and daughter in the book. The story is also full of all kinds of wonderful whimsical detail- dragons play a role in the plot and if readers look carefully they can find a pink dragon on nearly every page. The illustrations showcase the father-daughter relationship, changing seasons, and passage of time. The story ends with the father, daughter, and her son repainting the shed. I am always a fan of girls practicing different life skills, so it was great to see a story about a father and daughter building together, and that it was a fun and memorable experience. This is such a special book with a lesson that can be carried on for generations to come. Endearing, special, and whimsical.
