What makes this delightful picture book even more special, and the perfect Fathers day present, is that the words come from children when they are asked to describe their Daddies.

The vibrant animal drawings and simple text are bound to make it an instant favourite for any under 5.


Why I Love My Daddy by Daniel Howarth

A heartwarming book featuring children's own words and animal illustrations, this is the perfect book to say, "I love you, Daddy!" 'I love my daddy because...' Everyone's daddy is the best. And, who better to tell the world than children themselves? This charming book combines endearing things said by children about their fathers with gentle illustrations of familiar animals. The text is amusing and insightful, with reasons why daddies are loved by their children ranging from 'because he tickles me' to 'because he is my best friend'. With beautiful pictures and charming words from children all about daddies, it's just right to give to Dad and to read together!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
