Let’s Have a Daddy Day

My Review:

Let's Have a Daddy Day is a light-hearted book with charming illustrations that delivers a very important message.  The rhyming text encourages relationship-building between fathers and their children through quality time spent together.  It emphasizes the  time invested rather than the activities planned ... because it doesn't really matter what you do with your children, as much as it matters that you DO spend time having fun with them. 


My children and I both enjoyed this book.  It's the perfect length for a bedtime story -- long enough to snuggle with your kids before tucking them in, without putting a tired parent to sleep before the story's finished.  That's an important factor in our home, because Daddy likes to read to the kids before bed, but he often falls asleep in the middle of long books.  Now we have another book to add to the list of books Daddy can read at bedtime ... for a Daddy moment at the end of the day.
