I taught English for some years and this is exactly the sort of dull, uninspired writing that makes teachers' hearts sink, which just plods from start to finish with nothing to excite or engage a small child.
To whom is it meant to appeal? It doesn't seem to be aimed at children, and is apparently based on a poem written by Meghan Markle for Prince Harry- so not really a children's book at all- just a vanity project by the Duchess, with Harry strangely respresented by a soldier in a US style army uniform and forage cap,, even tho Harry left the army long before Archie was born and was never in the US army.
And what does it even mean? How did life as a father start on a bench....seriously..???? It just doesn't make sense, has no plot, no story and nothing to appeal to children except possibly the illustrations which are pleasant enough in a naive way, but the whole thing comes across as bland and dull and pointless.
The whole thing is just a bit of a mess.
At the end of the book he said: it’s not a story, it’s boring
I think that says a lot 🤷🏻♀️
I would give it zero star but needed to put one in so that I save the review 🙄
