My husband and son love to read this book together, and they've been reading it together since my son was brand new. Each page shows how a father animal kisses his baby, for example: Daddy wolf gives his pup a kiss on the nose. Of course the fun part is acting it out! The illistrations are simple and sweet as well. There is another book called Mommy Hugs that I get to read to our son - I highly recommend both.

I just love these books. Anne Gutman's very, very simple tale is sweet and touching. The illustrations are by Georg Hallensleben, the same illustrator who did Gutman's Lisa and Gaspard series, and his slightly crude, yet charming use of color and quick seeming acrylic sketches are just brilliant. It's a vibrant book. Perfect for a toddler. I bought both of these for a friend's baby and I do hope the parents will enjoy them as much as the little girl will--I know I'd keep them if I could somehow justify having a book for babies in my library.

This is by far the favorite book so far for my daughter and I. She loves to sit in my lap and point to the words or animal daddies giving kisses to their little ones. This book strengthens the child's conception of father/child bonds. Good for your son too.

I bought this book as a gift since my son loves it so much. He brings it up to us knowing he'll get kisses when we read it. It teaches children the parts of the body, and gives an excuse to parents to cuddle and kiss their "babies". My son is 18 months old, and still loves this book. He giggles as soon as we start to read it.

While I wasn't thrilled with the artwork in this series of books, it is still a cute book. We can go over all the different kinds of animals in the book, be silly on each page and mimic what the animals are doing, and these books have taught our son that he is not the only person/creature who has someone that they call "Mommy" or "Daddy". He would at first point to us very confused when we started reading the book, like "Hey, YOU are Daddy/Mommy!" but very quickly caught on and starts pointing at the "parent" animal and the baby animal exclaiming "Daddy/Mommy Bear(or whatever animal)" or "Baby Puppy! (or whatever)". It's endearing, and educational as they learn about this part of life, and differentiate between all the animal species, learn new words, and these books are fairly small too so our son carries them around the house pretending to read them all day too. Cute stocking stuffer or present for Mother's/Father's day for the new parents!

Five-year-old Down Syndrome twins choose this book over and over on their nights with Daddy. Beautifully and simply reinforcing. It makes them laugh and it makes me cry.

I got this book for my husband as a present from our baby daughter. It seems there are very few daddy/daughter books out there and I wanted something special that they could cuddle up and share. This book is appropriate for either a daughter or a son as the baby animals are all just cute and gender neutral. Basically, the book shows how daddy animals give their babies kisses on their heads, paws, ears, etc. Human daddy can give his baby kisses along with the book (except the daddy frog kissing his baby's eye, which is a bit tough for a human daddy to do).

The book is really quite simple and for very young children - probably under 2 years. But I can see where a child would love this because it gives them an excuse to snuggle with their Dad.
