Author Biography

Zehavit Tzarfati lives in Tel Aviv, Israel. She holds a BA in Psychology and Education, and a Masters in Public Policy. Zehavit loves animals and children, and it’s this love that urged her to dedicate her time to writing stories for young children. Her tales are original and all of them feature eye-catching illustrations which aid young readers in understanding the text within each story.
Her books are written simplistically, yet not too simplistically as to be deemed childish by slightly older children. Ultimately, Zehavit offers wonderful reading material to parents who enjoy reading to their children and, at the same time, to children who are learning to read for the first time.

Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite

My Dad Is A Great Man is written by Zehavit Tzarfati and illustrated by Mindy Liang. Within its pages you will find adventure, excitement, compassion, love, and the admirable characteristics of a father. A young boy is allowed to play in his dad's study. Filled with excitement and the need to explore, the boy begins to snoop around and finds a few of his dad's belongings. As he handles and examines each item, the boy imagines how each item serves its place in the study. The father explains to his son that each item did not serve the purpose the boy had imagined, but the boy loves his father anyway, and still thinks his dad is a great man.

Zehavit Tzarfati and Mindy Liang have created a wonderful, heartfelt and loving story, with very colorful, vibrant pictures. This story will hold a place in any reader's heart who knows a young boy who thinks the world of their father. I loved the extreme visions the boy had thought each item he found was once used for. A young boy that admires his father would think he did great things such as dig for dinosaur bones because he has a hat that resembles the one an archaeologist would wear. It is a very sweet story that every father and son should read together. I was very excited when I found at the end of the book a link to an activity kit for parents to do with their children. A very cute read, and awesome activity link.
