Format: Hardcover
I love my daddy is a wonderful ode to fathers. Its very simple text makes it perfect for toddlers, and when you add in Emma Dodd's bright and colorful illustrations, you get a book that is guaranteed to charm two year olds AND their fathers. The book has a wonderful read aloud flow, and since it has only one couplet per page, this one is a perfect choice for story time for toddlers and young preschoolers.

The author strikes just the perfect whimsical note as he highlights everything that makes Daddy special. "He teaches lots of things to me, I think he's clever. So does he!" That particular rhyme brought a lot of chuckles from the moms in my story time audience! Perhaps my favorite line is "He tucks me safely into bed, Then tells me stories from his head." It is here that it struck me that the author had captured the exact voice of a young child talking about his/her father.

Emma Dodd provides us with illustrations that capture the closeness between father and child, whether they are smushed up together on the couch watching TV, or making pancakes together in the kitchen. The colorful, bold line pictures are simple enough to appeal to even the youngest story listener, without losing the expressiveness or charm that makes Emma Dodd's style so unique.

Pick this one up in time for Father's Day, or if you are a story time leader looking to fill out your Father's Day theme collection. A joyous, energetic book that Dadddies are sure to love.

Checked this out from the library and my husband read it so much to my 2 girls that we bought it for him for his b-day. The candid relationship is super relatable and the rhyming makes it fun!

I bought this book fo my husband to read to our daughter. I agree with a previous poster that it is not geared toward males only, it seems to fit both genders easily.

perfect for my daughter to read with daddy. alot of daddy books are focused about boys,,, this doesn't do that and is easy to read for both.

This book is so sweet, you'll surely relate to this toddler and daddy relationship! The drawings are precious and funny and the rhymes are so sweetly written. My toddler and I gave this to her daddy as a father's day card and they love to snuggle up to read it at bedtime.
