I guess I was the only one Mar 30, 2006
I don't listen to country or cristian, so maybe in song form it is better, but I found the story as well as the illustrations to be rather creepy. Daddy is the king and Daugher is the QUEEN? eeeewwwwwww. I know it had to rhyme and whatnot, but this whole poem/song/story is icky to me. there is a line in it about loving you no matter how much you squirm or something equally blech. even where it isn't sort of inappropriate, it is sickningly shmaltzy and when my child takes this golden book from the bookcase, i have to hold back the bile, while trying to make up new words for the charachters to say. and the illustrations are nasty. the people look like marionettes, there isn't much about this book I can recommend. I keep meaning to chuck it.
Heartwarming! Jun 15, 2005
My dy wanted this book to read to our dd as she grows up. I read it and decided to order another copy to give to my dad for Fathers Day. It reflects beautifully the loving relationship that is unique to a Daddy and his little girl.
Sweet and gentle story to share with your child Apr 11, 2004
Golden Books were popular in the seventies, then somehow faded away with the popularity of the large, glossy and super colorful books of today. This little Golden Book takes you back to that special time when cuddling up next to Mom and Dad for a story was the highlight of the day. This beautiful story is from a father telling his little daughter how very much he is blessed to have her, just how much he loves her and how someday, though she will grow up and wear a wedding dress and leave him, he will always have her in his heart. Any young child will love this book, the soft illustrations and meaningful verses. Share this with your special little someone, it will become a treasured favorite.

This book is amazing!! I give it 5 stars up. It touched me soo much. I mean we as kids never realize how fast our lives go by. We think it takes a thousand years but to our parents it goes by so fast, i mean one day were a baby coming home from the hospital and the next were getting married and leaving the house. Its about a fathers story of his daughters life and how he sees it. It starts off when she comes home from the hospital and ends at her wedding. This book was inspired by a song by Bob Carlise and even though im only 14 i have already picked it to be my father-daughter dnace song at my wedding! I think everyone should read it!!!
Touched my heart May 23, 2002
Four years ago we purchased this book as a gift for our friends when they had their second baby girl. As I read a few of the stories in the bookstore I had to swallow deep to hold back tears. I was touched by the thoughtfullness of the stories, relationships and memories. Now as my husband will be celebrating his first Father's Day as a loving father of our new baby girl I couldn't think of anything more special to give him than this book. I am so pleased I found it.
