Reviews - What do customers think about Daddy Promises?
Beautiful illustration of a loving father. Mar 12, 2007
A rare find! A very positive picture of a loving and involved father. The pictures are great and the words depict the everyday interactions of a child with his father.
Meaningful Book Apr 22, 2002
Daddy Promises is a treasure. Beautiful illustrations, touching and poignant text and a meaningful message. Kerry Arquette's book captures the wonderul bond between parent and child and being a child of God.
It establishes and reaffirms a child's belief in the safety of the harbor of their father's love and protection. It is a wonderful gift for Father's Day, Baby Dedication or Baptism, or a new father.
Beautiful writing Jan 30, 2001
The writer displays masterful command of language, and has created a poignant, beautiful work. The illustrations complement the prose very nicely. This is a book that I can imagine fathers reading to their children time and again. However, I feel that the religious messages feel "tacked on" and detract from the impact that the book might have otherwise achieved. This is not a book I could share with students in my second grade classroom, and might not be appropriate in households of other faiths. While the publisher may have wanted this Christian prose to be included, I find it unfortunate that this book could not have been written to appeal to a wider audience.
A superbly illustrated, enchanting picturebook. Feb 7, 2000
Author Kerry Arquette knows the value of a promise kept. Daddy Promises is a wonderful picturebook story of children and their fathers, and the bonds of love, protection, teaching, sharing, listening, playing that mark their relationship with each other and with God. Arquette's enchanting story is superbly illustrated throughout by the splendid artistry of Kevin McCain. Highly recommended.
Not a criticism, just an observation Dec 8, 1999
Although many of the sentiments and promises in this book are sweet and important and wonderful, there are comments in this book that alienate the mixed faith family. I realize that this book was written for the Christian family, but not one of the reviews even mentions how explicitly Christian it is. In my view that is an oversight, this is a book that has two equally strong themes, the promises a Daddy makes and the promises that Christians believe Jesus made. It will be a wonderful fit for many home libraries, but not ours.
