DADDIES DO by Lezlie Evans
A Sterling Children’s Book
Illustrated by Elisa Ferro
Reading and the love of books starts at an early age. It not only helps propel literacy but strengthens bonds capturing the love and playfulness of spending time with daddy! My son and my grandson Rowan are featured doing just that! DADDIES DO certainly caught Rowan’s attention, as I’m certain it will capture the minds and hearts of your children too.
I received a copy from Sterling Publishing for promotional purposes. Any opinions in this post are honest, and our own, and have not been altered or influenced in any way.
DADDIES DO is a fun filled whimsical read. It’s full of beautifully illustrated and colorful pages containing activities that daddies do with their kids.
While Rowan is only 3 months old and doesn’t yet comprehend what is being read to him at this stage, the bright colors on the pages captured his eye and attention. He was all smiles and content just being there nestled in his daddies arms and hearing his voice. He may be a bit too young yet for daddy to be doing some of the things with him. As he gets older he’ll have fun and look back on the book and say “remember when you read this to me and I was too young to have all that fun”. Well, at least I’m hoping he does.
The book is full of fun times and little moments such as bath time, washing your child’s hair while making funny hairdos and so much more. Each memory has a father with his child which are represented in the form of cute animals.
A bird in a nest, a maple leaf in the tree and so much more are much harder to see when you are just a small child. Things are so much easier to admire and enjoy when they are more easily seen. I know my son will be lifting Rowan up onto his shoulders one day.
Other animals included are a delightful bird who teaches his baby to fly, a polar bear who gives his cub the best hugs and an octopus who cheers up his sick kiddo.
I love this book because it’s not overly wordy. Each page has up to 4 lines maximum and are written in the form of little poems that rhyme.
Who hugs me and holds me
After a long day at work
Who reads to me and bathes me
And tucks me in bed………. DADDY DOES…that’s who!
With Father’s Day fast approaching, DADDIES DO would be the perfect gift!
