"Daddy's Girl" - Children's Book Review & Giveaway! (U.S.) CLOSED #WorthyKidsIdeals

WorthyKids/Ideals Honors Father’s Day with Picture Book
about a Fabulous Daddy-Daughter Tea Party

In a time when fathers are becoming more engaged in their children’s lives, books that reflect involved fatherhood are needed more than ever. This spring, WorthyKids/Ideals will publish a picture book about a girl, a tea party, and a father who joyfully participates in his daughter’s interests, even when those interests are pink and sparkly. Full of doilies and boas, Daddy’s Girl follows a spunky girl as she lovingly prepares a tea party for the guest of honor—her dad.

Daddy’s Girl begins with the bubbly host setting up for a fabulous tea party: she plates cookies, perfects table placements, and puts on sparkly jewelry. Excitement builds as the little girl hangs a special sign on a chair and hears a knock at the door. When her father, the mystery guest of honor, walks in, his daughter decorates him with fancy tea-party attire, and he joins in the fun. The story closes with a sweet hug and the conclusion that tea is best with Dad.

With a trim size of 9 x 9 inches and a shimmering, pearlized jacket, Daddy’s Girl is a gift-sized picture book that radiates with the vibrant colors and endearing art of Estelle Corke. The book’s playful, rhyming text conveys the exuberance of the young narrator in great read-aloud fashion. Perfect for Father’s Day presents and every day in between, Daddy’s Girl is a loving tribute to father-daughter relationships. Great for children ages 4-7 years old.

About the Illustrator:
Estelle Corke has illustrated more than fifty children’s books, including Where’s My Hug?

My Review:
Daddy's Girl is a cute book about a little girl hosting a tea party for her and her daddy. She has extra seats and places her plush toys at the table too. I feel it's an adorable book for a father and daughter to share. I also feel that daddies should have tea parties with their little girls. It helps both fathers and daughters to bond and for little girls to see their daddies in a different light. They need to know that their fathers can be nice, sweet and gentle too.
