Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 8; read yourself: 6 to 10t
Interest Level: 3 to 8
Age of Child: Read to 4-year-old child.
Young Reader Reaction: Our preschooler most related to the pictures of daddy and his little girl. She liked seeing on the page many of the things she and Daddy share together.
Adult Reader Reaction: We both enjoyed reading this book, but it was particularly special for Dad, as there aren't many good books that offer his point of view.
Pros: This is a wonderful book that you can share with your children as a first bedtime story to a reassuring reminder as they grow up.
Cons: None, really. Don't get tricked into thinking this is about Daddy's new baby girl. There are plenty of passages about being a dad to boys and older children, too.
Borrow or Buy: Buy! Every new father should have this book to share with his children.
