As the mother of two young children, I can honestly say that this is one one of my favorite board books. I love all of Jabari Asim's books, but this one is by far my favorite. The illustrations are adorable, and the text is playful and loving. I first saw this book at the library, and immediately ordered one for my one-year-old daughter after reading it. The problem is that it is such a sweet book that I keep gifting it to parents of little girls. Each time I am told--without prompting, that they too love this book.

The illustrations are filled with loving pictures of a little girl and her father. The text is loving and non-annoying (Always a big plus). The little brown baby girl is adorable, and I think that every little girl would love to have her in their library. I would totally recommend this book for a baby shower, new baby, first or second birthday, or a great addition to any young child's library.

The illustrations in this book are great and I particularly like that the characters are diverse. We read it often to our 1 year old son, even though the book is for a girl! It's hard to find books where the characters look like my family and so we look beyond the 'girl' of mine part.
I'm certain you will enjoy this book, the story and illustrations are both adorable.

As an African American mama I love that this book reflects our family, and for once has an illustration of an African American Father!! My husband and I both enjoy this book very much! Love to see more books like this!!

This book melts my heart every time I read it to my now 18-month-old little girl. I may love it more than she does, though she does often request it and loves the page with the girl swinging into the night sky. The illustrations are colorful and sweet and perfect for the story of the book. I would highly recommend this as a gift, too, since it's not one you see every day in the stores. Beautiful book!

This is one of the first books that I purchased for my daughter. She was about 4 months at the time of purchase.

She absolutely LOVES this book.

The pictures are bold, bright and large.

The story has a nice rthym to it. It has a nice amount of pages. The book is very sturdy.

My daughter lover to grab at the book and touch the little girl that is illustrated. It is a very sweet story.

She seems to never get tired of hearing it. It is the book that I use to put her to bed with. I'll read two or three short stories and she usually ends with her favorite.

i would definitely reccomend as a great "Bedtime" book. :)

Hope you enjoy this with your little one as much as I do. I almost have the pages memorized. :)
