Let's Have a Daddy Day

My Opinion:

This is a beautifully illustrated book written for children and their dads. Karen Kingsbury has done a wonderful job in making this book flow together and it's easy-to-read style keeps the child(ren) engaged. It's beautifully illustrated with a dad, his son and daughter. These pictures also keeps the children engaged in the story and it provided fodder for their imagination.

A wonderful hard covered book this will be a keepsake for the dads and children in your life and would make a great gift for dads on Father's Day to read to their children. I've read Karen's books for adults and her writing style shines through in this beautiful children's book as well.
