For fathers young and old, new and not-so-new, this sweet rhyming book is meant to be read aloud to your child creating a special bond and a memory that will be treasured for a lifetime.
Two things to know right away. This is for girls (there is a boy one). Also the kindle is formatted to show a two page spread which may not work well with smaller screens.
Now that that's out of the way . . .
This is so cute! Every two-page spread shows a daddy loving his little girl and it goes from infant to off to school. Feeding, movies, falling off a bike, all the way to waving as she goes off to school. There is a mommy in some of the pictures (okay, one of them) but a single dad could read it as something other than "mommy".
Some of the pages have the whole verse on one side and the picture on the other while some split the verse and have two pictures. This one went all the way across to the open, dark closet and split the verse.
|When something in your closet has given you such a fright!|
|The ending . . . with another cute picture to go with it.|
I love that it is "daddy" so that Dads can read to their little ones.
The colors are bright and the pictures are like watercolors. I'm kind of wishing I had a reason to buy the boy one ;-)
