Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A father outlines to his two children all the fun they might have together on a Daddy Day. They might build a treehouse, catch tadpoles in the creek or go to the lake, which "would be the perfect spot to play as army rangers / looking out for bad guys as we dodge around the dangers." Kingsbury's doggerel limps along, ending curiously, as the dad opts instead for a wrestling match, with the conclusion that "when you're all grown up and you look back upon this day, / you'll know how much I loved you 'cause we took the time to play." That self-justifying statement may fall flat when readers realize the kids have not actually had the adventures Daddy has proposed. Andreasen's soft-focus, dappled images depict the actions hypothesized without substantially expanding on the text. (Picture book. 3-5)

    Sweet book for Dad!

    Let's go on a Daddy Day, a time for me and you.
    Today while you're still little, there're so many things to do!

    I'd like to share a book with you I have recently read. This children's book,Let's Have a Daddy Day, by Karen Kingsbury would make a great gift for Father's Day.

    In this book the children get to have a special day with their Daddy doing all sorts of fun things together. The message of this book shows the value of quality time spent between a dad and his children.

    The illustrations add to the enjoyment of this book as well with the realistic expressions on the faces of the children.

    My son and I enjoyed this book together.

    Thank you to Pam Mettler at Zondervan for sending me a review copy of this book.

    Spend Some Time With Daddy!

    A wonderful hardcover book that shows how important a daddy is to their sons and daughters. This book is a good reminder that a father is not only there for guidance and strong leadership, but he is fun also.
    Dan Andreasen's artwork in this book is soft and friendly. He has an originality that I find truly refreshing. He really captured the feelings of what the author was trying to convey.
    This is a great read-aloud for the little ones and a good starter read for those who are just learning.
    The only fault with this book is it's lack of Biblical verses for support. I normally wouldn't have a problem with this, but it is touted as a Christian book. The only mention of God is in the dedication. I don't think the book is bad because of this, but I do think it could have been stronger by giving verses that upheld it's principles.

    Fun Childrens Book

    My eyes feasted on the cute and touching illustrations by Dan Andreasen as I read this entertaining book. The children in this story get all excited about spending the day with their Daddy. They think up all these exciting things to do with their daddy. They soon discover one of their favorite ways to spend time with Daddy is in giggle time, which includes a lot of laughing, hugs, and kisses. It is just as much fun and important as all the projects and adventures they had planned; like building a tree house, catching frogs and other exciting outdoor fun. Making memories with their Daddy to last a life time is the main thing no matter what.

    Karen Kingsbury has written a children's book about having a Mommy Date a few years back. I enjoyed that book too. Its fun how the adventures in both of these books are so different. Mommy and Daddy dates are something my husband and I have done with our children. It has definitely created special memories I cherish. I'm so thankful that Karen had captured the essence of Mommy and Daddy dates in her books. It makes it more meaningful to read with your kids and grand kids!

    Picture book about a day with Dad is time well spent

    Let's Have a Daddy Day by Karen Kingsbury & Dan Andreasen is a rhyming book about a dad spending a day with his children. First Mia's thoughts: I like it! I liked it a lot because I love my daddy. I like cover because it had the same raccoons from a page inside the book. My favorite page is the one where they are wrestling, because it makes me feel happy inside! It gave me lots of ideas of things to do with my daddy! I love the artwork because it's all about family and is have cute things like raccoons! Now my review. I really loved the book's concept. The dad is suggesting a range of activities to do with his children, and if one doesn't work because of weather or other circumstances, he has another fun idea at the ready. At the end, he reminds readers that they don't need special weather or equipment to spend a fun-filled day together, because as long as they are together, it will make a wonderful memory filled with love. Kingsbury tells the story in neat rhyming couplets that make the story run smoothly and capture the reader's ear. Andreasen's art has a bit of a retro feel, and the colors are all muted, making this a perfect bedtime story. His animals are realistic but with a sense of whimsy. Kingsbury reminds readers that it's all about the time together when it is spent in love.
