With My Daddy belongs to the bestselling Growing Hearts series and will make the perfect gift for Father’s Day. This series celebrates the milestones of a toddler’s emotional development. Time spent with dad while riding bikes or swimming in the pool become treasured activities. If a child becomes scared, angry or any of the other toddler emotions, nothing helps calm their spirits quite like a hug from their dad. With dad we can feel daring, playful, adventurous and confident.
The illustrations in this sweet book are unique. Dad is illustrated in giant form with his daughter a tiny figure. The emotions expressed on the daughters face perfectly exemplify the emotions she is experiencing. The way in which she hugs her daddy’s leg or hides behind his strong hand shows the special bond that can only be experienced between a father and his special daughter.
