Daddy’s Girl —April 2017

What’s more fabulous than a tea party? 
Tea with Daddy, of course! 
This exuberant story begins before the honored guest arrives, 
with much ado—preparing, decorating, and accessorizing. 
And when Daddy makes his entrance, 
it’s clear that the little hostess couldn’t be more thrilled. 
Perfect for daddy-daughter reading time, 
this new picture book and its warm conclusion 
are sure to serve up smiles and tug at heartstrings.

From the author–illustrator team behind the popular Loves You series (Grandma Loves You! and Grandpa Loves You!) comes a tribute to the most enduring bond of all, that between a mother and her child. In tender rhyming text, Mommy Bunny tells Baby of the love she feels in her role as a mother.

My heart’s full of love that blossoms and grows
from your little nose to those teensy toes.
You are my moonbeam, my stars in the sky.
My hopes and my heart, my cute, honey pie.

Accompanied by enchanting artwork, touching endearments express the devotion found within a mother’s heart. A heartwarming gift for every mother (and all mothers-to-be). Along with a presentation page, the book also provides space for a keepsake photo and a letter.
