When you hold my hands, you hold my heart.
Today we celebrate all of the wonderful dads, grandpas, and father-figures in our lives. As we celebrate, I'm reminded of a favourite book in our household - "Why I Love My Daddy" (written in children's very own words, and beautifully illustrated by Daniel Howarth.)
The words are simple, the meanings are deep, and the "daddy & me" portrayals are captivating. With the turn of each page, little readers can identify all of daddy's unique qualities, as well as callout the different animals portrayed throughout the story. It's a great way for kids to learn descriptive words like, "clever", "strong", "cosy", "funny", "kind" etc...
My boys get a kick out of the father/son beaver page...
If you are looking for a short and sweet story that daddy can read to the kids, I recommend "Why I Love My Daddy".
Happy Father's Day!
