Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Songwriter Morgan adapts her "King of the World" (sung by evangelical ensemble Point of Grace on an accompanying CD) with limited success. The vaguely Latina-looking, curly-haired moppet in O'Neill's unremarkable watercolors is the very picture of her daddy; her blond mother looks on benevolently as dad and daughter frolic lovingly from her toddlerhood to the birth of her own curly-haired daughter. The song's refrain ("There's nothing better than being your girl. / If I am your princess, then you are king of the world") is rendered more or less as sung, in rhyme, but the linking verses appear in an uneasy prosified verse, making for a difficult read-aloud. Like Love You Forever, this sentimental picture book is likely to appeal more to parents than children. (Picture book. 3-6)

'The touching story is true to life for anyone and everyone as we are all children, we all have parents, some of us are the parents, and the bond that is formed between child and parent is the strongest bond that one can experience and this book outlines that perfectly... This is definitely a book to have on any little girl's bookshelf as it is one of those that will carry with her throughout her life and as an adult she will still hold it dear to heart and keep it in her collection.' — ~Today's Country Magazine

    Great gift for Daddy from Daughter

    I received Love You Forever from my son and was looking for a book for my husband from our daughter. I love this story; I was teary eyed in the store reading it. Gave it to my husband for Father's Day. Highly recommend.

    Right next to Love You Forever on my shelf!

    Cindy Morgan has once again touched the hearts of my family with her music and writing. Dance Me Daddy captures the essence of growing up and remembering the truly important memories in family life.
    Not only do you receive a beautifully written and illustrated book, but a touching CD with Point of Grace singing Cindy's song of the same title with Cindy so beautifully narrating the book and sharing the sweet story of the inspiration for her song and book.
    My 15 year old daughter and 8 year old friend both enjoyed this bundle immensely. Our son's fiancée heard the story and song, insisting she will have this song as her father/daughter dance for their upcoming wedding.
    I have acquired a collection of treasured books throughout my 22 years of parenting. Dance me Daddy will be displayed prominently next another sweet story, Love You Forever.
