Reviews - What do customers think about My Daddy?

Message gets to you amazingly with few words.  Jul 18, 2005
I love this book. I love it, because we don't have too many books dedicated for fathers. I have read this book to my children and to my students, they all loved it. It is so true that a small act can mean so much and be seen under a different light from a the child's perspective. A DAD is a hero for a child and his actions are heroic. I hope every parent, specially fathers understand that and give more attention to their children.
Perfect  Jul 1, 2004
My 2 year old loves this book. It's perfect for the dad who is a triathlete! Daddy runs, bikes and swims. I'm looking forward to getting the Mommy book as well.
Hits the mark  Dec 12, 2002
The imagery here is excellent. The pitures are simply beautiful and the message is wholesome. I found myself lingering on each page for quite a while. There is plenty to occupy a child's attention on each page, as well.
Not Worth It  Nov 19, 2002
There's nothing to this book. No great story. Just a few phrases. Not touching. Don't waste your time.
Highly recommended by my 2-year-old twins  Apr 7, 2002
One of my daughters picked this book out at the library, and now I'm buying a copy of our own because she and her sister can't bear to return it (and our library copy is way overdue). This book is a real favorite of theirs. Often they will compete over who gets tucked in with "The Daddy Book" at night. The illustrations are very creative and engaging, and the story is very close to their hearts. (Daddy goes out into the big, scary world and always finds his way back home to greet his child with warmth and love.) My girls say, "Highly recommended!"
