Sally’s Dad is Far Out

The Sally’s Dad series has become a modern classic in Danish homes because it is fun to read out loud – both for parents and their children aged 4 - 7. This time Sally’s dad is out and about in nature – fresh air, the wind in his hair, soil under his feet. But not everything goes as planned: Sally’s dad cannot name the animals in the forest, he cannot get the fire going, and he has a very hard time putting up the tent – making everyone all the happier when the trip is over, cuddled on the sofa at home with their iPads.
