Back Cover: Let's Have a Daddy Day, written by Karen Kingsbury and illustrated by Dan Andreasen, is a playful and heartwarming picture book that celebrates the cherished and unique times that fathers and their children spend together. Whether it's building forts, wrestling, or catching tadpoles, this book reminds us that there are many ways to have a special day with Daddy.


REVIEW: My eyes feasted on the cute and touching illustrations by Dan Andreasen as I read this entertaining book. The children in this story get all excited about spending the day with their Daddy. They think up all these exciting things to do with their daddy. They soon discover one of their favorite ways to spend time with Daddy is in giggle time, which includes a lot of laughing, hugs, and kisses. It is just as much fun and important as all the projects and adventures they had planned; like building a tree house, catching frogs and other exciting outdoor fun. Making memories with their Daddy to last a life time is the main thing no matter what.


Karen Kingsbury has written a children’s book about having a Mommy Date a few years back. I enjoyed that book too. Its fun how the adventures in both of these books are so different. Mommy and Daddy dates are something my husband and I have done with our children. It has definitely created special memories I cherish. I'm so thankful that Karen had captured the essence of Mommy and Daddy dates in her books. It makes it more meaningful to read with your kids and grand kids!
