So many children's books today are just plain awful. Both in content and context. Inappropriate, often victimizing topics. Hideous illustrations in repellent colors. Not anything I would buy or give to my grandchildren. Daddies is so sorely needed in a troubled world that devalues daddies. Indeed, children are forced to live in a world that devalues daddies, mothering and families while making children objects of consumerism. Daddies sweetly and accurately depicts what all children crave -- a strong and sweet daddy who provides for them and protects them. The last illustration says it all. A family, a mother and father and children, gathered around the table in safety, stability, security. Gathered in love. And like Norman Rockwell said, if it isn't that way then it should be. Daddies provides a model so that we as caring and responsible adults can make the choice to be that way, too. A most satisfying and favorite read for children and their adults, alike.
I search for good books that make my grandchildren feel good and that teach them how to live. Informative, insightful, inspiring. Daddies is a highly recommended classic that does all this!
Keep up the good work, Golden Books! And, if you at Random House are reading this review, I would love to see Golden Books reissue anything by illustrator, the incomparable Eloise Wilkins, especially, We Help Mommy and We Help Daddy. Both are priceless.
And thank you!
