A day spent with a young child at the beach is filled with many minor dramas—a lost shoe, a ball that floats too far out into the water, a drippy ice-cream cone. These can be frustrating events for both child and parent, but the daddy in this book finds a way to fix each problem, lovingly and patiently. Why? Because he loves his little girl, of course! This spot-on pairing of words and images is a warm, reassuring, and humorous tribute to dads everywhere.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have found that I can't go wrong with Andrew Clements. He is my all time favorite Children's author. When I borrowed this book from the library and read it, I knew I had to buy it for my husband to read to our little one. Daddy totally eats up these books where daddy feels so special!
Reaction: I think the author beautifully brings to light how patience and love are great gifts parents can give their children.
My two daughters (ages 3 and 1) love it when daddy reads them this book! They will sit and listen to him and smile the whole time.
