It¿s about time there was a book, as lovingly written as this one is, about fathers sharing special times with their children. Reading a story about loving mothers and grandparents guiding, laughing, and participating in their children¿s lives is commonplace, but now (within the pages of this book), our children can also realize that a daddy or father can have the same warm feelings. .................. As the story moves along, the reader will completely understand the many ways in which a daddy enjoys and helps his children when they are small as well as when they grow and meet life¿s difficult challenges. As the illustrations suggest, a daddy can tuck you in at bedtime, read stories, kiss away tears, play outside on warm spring days, and so much more. That¿s what a daddy does! .................. ***** Nearing the end of the story, we soon come to realize that children will inevitably grow up and away and that life will lead them to many places. When that happens - and a playful loving daddy is not a necessity - it is important to understand and remember that a loving father will always be there - waiting to help them and guide them at any time and at any age. Thus the statement ¿ ¿I will be your father¿forever.¿ *****
My great grandchild loves this book. He is three years old. We need more family books for children. I will be buying at least 3 more copies to give as gifts. This is a beautifully written and illustrated book.
Every family needs this book! It inspires us to be loving, understanding and joyful parents. It is easy for children to understand and beautifull to look at. This is a book to give as a gift to every new parent and a keepsake to hand down to generations.
