Summary: A little girl honors her dad and all the fun they have together in this sweet companion to In My Heart.
Our spunky heroine loves spending time with her dad. They ride bikes and swim in the pool! They can imagine exciting adventures, or just lounge around on a hot day. Being with her dad makes her feel safe and comforted, strong and powerful. She can confront the neighbor’s dog and get thrown up in the air! And when she gets too scared, or too angry, nothing calms her down better than a big hug from dad. This addition to the bestselling Growing Hearts series will make an appealing gift for Father’s Day.
Spending time with her daddy, the little girl experiences many emotions like bravery, confidence, playfulness, but the best feeling of all is the one of safety that no one but her daddy can provide.
The illustrations are stunning. The way the illustrator depicts the father's large hands as the focal point of each page show just how big of an influence a father has over his child. The whimsical images along with the constant motion and a fun storyline easily captivate readers. With My Daddy is certain to become a fast favorite among parents and children alike.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
