Dad’s Hat

Dad's hat.

by Dawn McMillan

illustrated by Kat Chadwick 

In this narrative, Grandma has knitted a blue hat for Dad. Blue is Dad’s favourite colour, and he wears the hat everywhere until one day it gets wet and he shrinks it in the drier. Dad tries wearing some of his other hats, but they just don’t seem right. Tom feels sorry for Dad and comes up with an idea to solve Dad’s problem.
