Buy The Phoenix of Persia
Welcome to my latest blog post. I’m sharing picture books that could make wonderful gifts for Father’s Day or perhaps you just want to spoil a significant male in your life. I hope my piece represents the many different hobbies and passions significant one may have. Let’s begin with some picture books featuring interesting dad characters first.
The Phoenix of Persia is based on a story from the Shahnameh written by Iranian poet Ferdowsi in the 10th century. The book will be greatly received by someone who enjoys firebird folklore and fairytales. Complete with striking, whimsical illustrations the story is centered around a king who is waiting for the arrival of his son. When born it is discovered that the child has white hair and is banished to the forest. The story shared is a mythical tale highlighting the importance of family, questions the meaning of wise and explores how to forgive. As well as enjoying the book together by using the QR code within the book readers can also enjoy music telling the story. Information about the instruments used in the music piece are explored at the back of the book. A brilliant accompaniment telling the story in a unique way.
I do hope you’ve enjoyed my recommendations, I have certainly enjoyed compiling this piece.
Until next time, happy reading.
