Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—The team who created Because You Are My Baby (Abrams, 2008), about the different careers a mother could pursue and how she would use them to benefit her baby, continues that same concept here. The different professions the father tries range from famous (Hollywood director and baseball player) to adventurous (explorer and ranger) to out of this world—literally. North uses simple "if…then" structured rhymes that beg to be read aloud. "If I were a librarian, we could venture anywhere./Wherever we decide to go, a book would take us there." The father, his daughter, and her doll ride a book like a magic carpet. Hall again creates fun-filled, full-page watercolor cartoon illustrations in the same retro style as the first book. This selection is a perfect Father's Day pick.—Samantha Larsen Hastings, West Jordan Public Library, UT

From Booklist

In this companion to Because You Are My Baby (2008), written in a mother’s loving voice, it is Daddy who makes a preschooler’s dreams come true. Playful rhyme and uncluttered watercolor spreads depict the two together in exciting, invented scenarios: Daddy as a pilot who flies his daughter to school and impresses all of her friends; Daddy as an inventor who makes a high-tech tree house. The loving bond between parent and child is at the core of the story, and the joy is as much in the hugs as in the imaginative play. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

Illustrations are fun.

My husband has been tucking her into bed ever since she started sleeping in her own room and now they've added this book into their nightly routine.

Our little one calls it the "daddy book" and loves to read it with her daddy.

Finding a picture book that displays the indestructible love a mother has for her child is about as easy as apple pie--there's about a gazillion of them to choose from. But finding one that depicts the love a father has for his child, well, it's no easy task. That's why I'm thrilled that Sherry North decided to seize this nook with her second picture book to date Because I Am Your Daddy (her first does the mother-child thing flawlessly!) Not only does North explore a myriad of "daddy dream jobs" showing us just how great paternal love is, she incorporates her talent for precise rhymes and fresh imagery to get her point across. With thrilling scenarios like riding big waves with Dad "if [he] was a surfer," little ones will enjoy seeing just how expansive their papa's love really is. And what could be more satisfying than making your child know just how much he's loved by mom and dad?

What would a father do to make his child's dreams come true? If he were a pilot, he could fly her to school. If he were a scientist, he could help her dig up the biggest dinosaur the world has ever known. If he were a surfer, he could take her on his board to ride the highest wall of water. If he were an explorer, he could guide her through the darkest cave. And if he were an inventor, he could build a high-tech tree house. Author Sherry North's flowing poetic text helps us to feel how a father measures his love for his daughter. The watercolor paintings by illustrator Marcellus Hall, though contemporary, have the feel of those wonderful children's picture books of the 1950s and allow the reader to visualize the loving bond between parent and child. North and Hall had previously collaborated on Because You Are My Baby, which won the NAPPA Gold Award for 2008. As a daddy myself, Because You Are My Daddy gets a high five from me.

This book is a wonderful for a dad to read to his kids. I have Sherry North's first book about a mom and her baby (Because You Are My Baby), and my five-year-old son has loved that book ever since he was two, so I knew I had to get this one for his dad to read to him.

It's just precious! The dad and toddler go on a series of charming, whimsical adventures together. There aren't many great books like this that focus on a dad's love for his children in this way - and the story is both creative (the dad inventing a magical treehouse for his child, for example) and beautifully illustrated - making this book really irresistible.

Another great Daddy book for your collection.
This one focuses on different jobs Dads do (like a pilot, baseball player, scientist, carpenter, drummer, ...) and what they would do for their child.
They all would do something to make their kids happy and to make them smile.
And then the book ends saying: 'Because I am your daddy, I would do anything for you.'

Its a very cute book, thats shows so many different job fields.
It makes kids dream about the different things they can be too.

The illustrations are very vivid and fun to look at.
