11 Things I Love About You

Dear Mr Dad,

The 17th of June has always been a date that our family looks forward to. Yes, it’s your birthday and it’s right next to Father’s Day (Lucky you!)! That’s why I’m writing this post!

Over the years, you’ve been a PAWSOME father and a great husband for Mrs Mom, and you’ve made a lot of sacrifices for us. Ever since I was born, you’ve been like my best friend and you haven’t failed to keep Little Miss Diva and Ali the Salt Bubba happy too! You’ve got a great sense of humour and you’ve got a heart of pure gold! You’ve supported us and loved us with all your heart and you’ve always stood by our side. You are a very -and I mean VERY – PAWSOME dad! After all, you are the one and only Mr Dad! So, we’d all like to say THANK YOU for everything you’ve done! We really appreciate it! And since it’s such a special occasion, I’ve written a lovely (hopefully you’ll find it that way) poem, just for you!

11 Things I Love About You

A poem written by Omar Mukhtar, The Pawsome Lion on behalf of the whole family

Fatimah The Little Miss Diva, Ali The Salt Bubba and Mrs Mom

I love the way you keep us happy,

The way you sing to us,

I love how you smile at us in the morning,

The way you advise us

I love the way you play chess with me,

The way you comb our hair,

I love how you know how to make us laugh,

The way you help with your great sense of fashion

I love the way you love Mrs Mom, 

And how you care for her,

But most importantly, I love the way you stand by our side

Which makes you a PAWSOME father!

And on this special day, I’d like to say…

Happy Birthday! Happy Father’s Day!

From your loving family!

Happy birthday and Happy Father’s Day, Mr Dad! We hope they both turn out to be great days! May God grant all of your wishes and make them the best days ever! 😀

p/s: Dear God,

Please reserve my dad the best place in heaven coz he totally deserves it!

🍰 A Piece of Cake: A Book-less Tragedy! 😵

It was the Easter holidays and I was in my dad’s car 🚗, holding a huge pile of books 📚 in my hands. We were going to the library to exchange them for some new ones. When we reached the library, we started looking for a place to park the car. To our surprise, we found that there were hardly any cars outside it.

“Strange…” I said. 🤔

“Oh well, now we’ve found a place to park the car!” my dad said cheerfully. 😃 He hated the long searches for a space to park.

My dad turned the ignition off and unlocked the doors. I heaved the books up and stepped out of the car. Struggling to see above the books, I staggered over to the library’s main entrance – and discovered that all the libraries were closed for the Easter holidays! I couldn’t believe it! How was I going to live without a single book to read? I was sure to die a slow painful death 💀 in a BOOK-LESS world…

Pawsome Book Club: Paddington at Large by Michael Bond

Hiya pawsome peeps! How’s everything going?

Last week, me and Little Miss Diva went to Thimblemill Library to exchange our old books for new ones for The BFR. Along with the books, we also got some cool prizes! 🏆 Our first was…a BFG – or Big Friendly Giant – pop out bookmark! It is PAWSOME!!!

The other prizes we got were…our first two Collector Cards!!! 🂠 🂠 They feature some of Quentin Blake’s amazing illustrations picked out of Roald Dahl’s books. On the backs, there’s all sorts of things! There’s tongue twisters, practical jokes and more! One of the cards even has a ‘Scratch n’ Sniff’ smell on them! When you scratch it, it pongs badly!!! YUUCK!!!

Once again, I am going to be reviewing a book that I have read for The BFR. This time, I have put the scary business to one side and went for something different. The book that I have chosen for this post is…Paddington at Large by Michael Bond!! I can guarantee that Micheal Bond is one of the most PAWSOME writers in the world!

 

The front cover of this book is adorable and eye-catching at the same time. A chubby lil’ bear in a tuxedo and a red hat! Who wouldn’t want to pick up that book?

The main character (or should I say animal!) in this book is a bear called Paddington and this book takes you through the adventures he has and the mischief he gets up to. You will surely burst into fits of laughter!

I would definitely recommend this book to people who love adventure and have a taste for humour. It is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and I’m sure that many of you will too! You won’t regret it!

Finally, rating! The number of stars that I am giving this book is…5!!! Yay!!! It is probably one of the best books I have ever read! It really deserves 5 stars! If you would like to read this book, visit your local library today and ask about it!

Oh well, that’s all, folks! Remember to look out for more reviews from my Pawsome Book Club! 😉
