I've messed up again! This was supposed to be posted a while back, but I didn't realize I had received the book. Things have been pretty wild around here since the arrival of the baby! Here's the tour, and look below it for my review!

Let's Have a Daddy Day

My Review:

My sons LOVE having a day with Daddy around here, cause that means something like wrestling or movies based on comic books! I was anticipating this book so we could read it and, in turn, appreciate time spent with Daddy. I know I have fond memories of fishing and visiting church members with my Daddy when I was a little girl!

As expected, Karen Kingsbury did not disappoint! The book was filled with colorful illustrations of a daddy, son and daughter as they went on adventures like playing ball, finding tadpoles, and just playing together. This is a lovely book about how nice it is to spend time together. It would be a great book to give to a dad on Father's Day, or for a father to give to his children. One occasion that comes to mind is that a dad who was getting ready to leave for a trip of some sort could share this with his child/ren to help them anticipate the fun they will have together when he gets back home!

This one definitely gets my thumbs up!
