McGhee, Alison Tell me a Tattoo Story Chronicle Books, 2016. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK
In this story a tattooed dad explains the origins of each of his
tattoos to his son. They all represent different important things in his life
from his parents, to his favorite books, to his time at war, to meeting his
wife, and finally his love for his son. Which one will be his son’s favorite?
The artwork in this story in some of my favorite that I have
ever seen. I don’t think this book would go over that well in my school library
(despite the fact that I myself have a large tattoo), I have many students who
are not even allowed to wear fake tattoos. However I think this would be an
awesome gift to a family with tattooed parents and young children.
