Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Book Blurb
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.

My Thoughts
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 ;-)
