Review: I Love My Daddy

I love my daddy, yes I do. He’s kind, he’s funny, he’s clever and a great teacher. He sings me all his favourite songs (whilst playing air guitar), loves to dance – and when he lifts me onto his shoulders, I can almost touch the sky.

Author Giles Andrae is the king of simplicity. This lovely rhyming-text book once again hits the mark for toddlers with whimsical prose and the ability to look at the world from a youngster’s point of view.

Gorgeous, bold and shiny bright pictures by Emma Dodd perfectly complement the text and I love how she’s created many a ‘close-up’ – perfect for reading to youngsters in large groups, as well as drawing children in deeply on close-viewing.
