I just finished reading My Little Girl by Tim McGraw and Tom Douglas to my three girls, ages 3, 2, and 1. It was the kind of book I expected from a celebrity author that depended more on the name to sell the book than the content. However, despite my disappointment with the story line, I must give kudos to the illustrator, Julia Denos. The illustrations were GORGEOUS and MADE the book, in my opinion. Denos' use of vivid colors and expressive faces brought the characters to life and made me fall in love with little Katie, for she reminded me of the adorable faces my own daughters wear.

As far as the story line goes, it was strangely disjointed. It jumped from one day to another and one scene to another without logical transition. I had to check several times, thinking I had skipped a page as I was reading it aloud. The IDEA behind the story, however, is a beautiful one, of a daughter and daddy spending the day together, just enjoying each other's company.

So... did my daughters enjoy the book? Because my girls are so young, they're much more interested in the story the pictures tell anyway, so they liked examining the illustrations and asking questions about the dog:)

My Little Girl by Tim McGraw and Tom Douglas is a winner-it truly deserves ten stars!
What a perfect book for fathers and daughters to read together. The well written story catches you from the beginning with print in ice cream colors and real life illustrations-no perfect little princess here! Katie's choice of apparel and pig-tailed hairdo are exactly what a modern day princess would look like. Kudos to the illustrator Julia Denos.

I love the part of the story with Katie's phrase "love you more". It's such a simple little phrase, yet so meaningful. " Love you more" is what my granddaughter always ends her good-byes with whether on the phone or in person. I also liked bedtime with Katie's daddy telling a real life story where Katie gets to add the story parts she knows .

As a former kindergarten teacher each student in my class made "An Important Book" about the fun things they did with their parents. Almost always they remembered moments plain and simple just like the things Katie and her dad did in the book. I would have loved sharing this book with my students to help spark their writings and illustrations.

The greatest gift you can give a child is time spent one-on-one, experiencing the things you do together. Hats off to Tim McGraw and Tom Douglas for reminding us that kids only need spending time with a parent to create lasting memories. It's a must-have book for every daddy with a little girl.

I've never done a book review but I thought I would give it a try. So I signed up to be a Thomas Nelson Book Review Blogger. They send me a book, I read it and post my review on a consumer site and on my blog. I get to keep the book. Fair enough.

The book I received is a wonderfully illustrated book called, "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw and Tom Douglas. When this book arrived in the mail and my 8 year daughter saw the cover she insisted I had to read it to her. We sat down right after dinner and I read to her in my best interpretations of the characters voices. She listened intently to the sweet story of a father and his daughter enjoying time doing "nothing in particular". They find time to dance and talk about imaginary cloud formations. I think my daughter loved the drawings but not the text/dialogue of the story.

The words did not seem like the kind you expect to hear from a young princess talking to her father. "Daddy, swing me all the way over the sun!" does not sound like anything I have ever heard from my daughter.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The story is simply and easily told: a Dad and daughter day of doing nothing in particular, but having fun just doing those things together.

While the story idea is nice and is something we taught our daughter--that "doing nothing" can be a very special day--the story itself was a bit too sappy sweet for my taste. I'm sure there are super lovey dad's out there, but for most women that I have known, this was not the case. Given that as my guideline, this book may not be for every Dad and daughter, especially if the child in question is old enough to wonder why her dad isn't like the one in the book. Furthermore, it just didn't feel "natural" to my mind.

One minor point that niggled at me was the dog. I couldn't understand why the dog's odd (un-child friendly and not read-out-loud friendly) name was included. McGraw family dog? Douglas family dog? It just felt out of place and baffled me.

The art work was lovely! Bright and flowing water colors and very real and personable looking characters. I was enchanted by it. Ms. Denos did a fantastic job. She deserves 5 stars for her art, and I wish there was some way to rate illustrations alone. Without her art, this would have only been a 2 star book.

I honestly think that they are planning on using Tim McGraw (and Faith Hill's preface) as the selling point for this book, and got the feeling the book was more about them (how much they love their children and family life) than it was about a general dad and daughter.
