Daddies is a treasure! I just delightfully discovered Daddies and I feel like I found hidden gold. I love everything about it! I love the Tibor Gergely illustrations. The just right illustrations and the subject matter are universal and timeless. Daddies simply reflects what all children need, want and deserve. A good daddy. A good family.

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.

Enjoy!

And thank you!

I remember this book from when I was a child...the pictures are a little "old fashioned" but my class enjoyed the story during our week of studying families!

This Golden Book was well received by my 2 1/2 year old great neice. I have to read it to her 3-4 times when she visits.

I could tell this was written years ago. A bit old fashion, however, a nice fit to including in my child care library for Father's Day week.

Nothing like the good old days! This great classic gives kids a look at some of the many occupations (of course excluding modern technology since it was written decades ago) of daddies with lots of exciting pictures to go with it. The best part is the end, daddy coming home to his kids! It even shows the family sitting around a table eating dinner together, which is beginning to be a growing trend once again by those in our society who value the importance of family. Love the Golden Book Classics!

Although the book is clearly from a specific period when families were more traditionally defined by dads who went to work and moms who stayed at home, it's still valuable in it's content simply because it offers different jobs that dads today still work at and, quite simply, it IS meant to be a book about Daddies so that's what the focus is on. A simple explanation for 3 year olds about what dads do when they go to work.

I bought this one for my grandson because it had been read to me when I was a child. Modern parents might a an issue with it because it portrays Daddy as the bread winner. (Life was simpler 60 years ago when I was pre-school.)
