Such a delightful little story, perfect for a bedtime read from Daddy...It will warm the heart, while emphasizing the special bond between a father and his child.
This adorable children’s book, by experienced children’s author Helen Foster James, is written in rhyming verse, taking a trip through an adventurous and special day, spent with the affectionate Daddy bunny and his cuddly little baby bunny. The big, bold words are perfect for little eyes to start following and even reading along, as they get older.
Daddy and baby bunny share a special relationship as they set out for a fun-filled day of playing, exploring, hopping and swinging, ending with a warm and fuzzy bedtime cuddle. Daddy bunny explains how his love is endless and how he’ll be his baby’s teacher and protector, his whole life through, “You’ll be a superhero...especially to me.” Daddy helps build confidence and assurance that his baby bunny is loved.
Illustrator Petra Brown uses the softest colors, you can almost feel the warmth and sunshine radiating off the pages! The book even includes a space at the end for Daddy to write an endearing note to his child and to include a photo of them together.
Quill says: Daddy Loves You is ideal for a bedtime story or anytime Daddy wants to share some one-on-one special time with his son or daughter.
