"Daddy Hugs" is one of the only baby-toddler books I've seen out there about Dads that doesn't focus on the stereotypical "macho-man" Daddy roles (like building a tree house or going camping/fishing). This is a great book for Daddies to read to their little ones that reinforces a more modern, nurturing Daddy. In the book, Karen Katz counts 10 different ways Dads can give their babies hugs (i.e.: kissing boo-boos, burping, getting ready for bed, first steps, playing hide-and-seek, dancing on Daddy's feet, etc.) The board book format makes this a great gift to give to new Dads, to incourage the ritual of reading to baby. Great way for new Dads who may even be a bit nervous about their new role to bond with their babies and see just how special that relationship can be.

My husband reads this book to our daughter before bed. I bought this when she was 6 months old. She is now almost 1 year and she excitedly points to this book for bedtime storytime. The only other book she also gets excited about is "Mommy Kisses". Highly recommended!

We have a lot of Karen Katz books so I was excited to get this book for my husband and daughter. There are 10 types of hugs but they range in age so it's hard for my husband to do all of the types of hugs with our 15 month old. For instance, it talks about finger hugs and first step hugs. Sure, my daughter used to hug our fingers when she was a baby but she hasn't done that in months. Plus she started walking at 11 months so we're way past the first step hugs. It's hard for my husband to act these out with her and she quickly loses focus because of that. We like the book but it's not one we regularly reach for.

This is a great book that focuses on time with daddy. Most baby/toddler books focus around the mommy. This is refreshing! The pages are made of a shiny-like paper, so I'd recommend this for a toddler over the age of 14 months, so no accidental ripping occurs. The illustrations are cute, so the child can understand what's going on without reading the words. My daughter's favorite page is when the daddy kisses the baby's boo-boo. The actions between the daddy and the baby are general enough that any family can relate.

My husband and I both love reading this sweet book to our 6-month-old son. It shows different ways a dad shows his love for a baby of indeterminate gender ("finger hugs," "make it better" hugs, etc.)

As with all Karen Katz's books, the illustrations are darling. (The baby and the kitty are especially cute!) It's also very colorful and seems to really hold our son's attention.

I got this as a present to my husband from our daughter for Christmas. It was his favorite present by far. There aren't a whole lot of "Daddy" books out there so I was happy to find one. The pictures are eye catching, the storyline simple, and the board book pages are perfect since my toddler loves to rip paper like it is going out of style! Get this book for your daddies to read to your babies. They will love!
