My Daddy by Guido van Genechten

Celebrate fatherhood any time of the year with My Daddy by Guido van Genechten. John’s daddy is the best daddy in the whole world. John can crawl between his legs and Daddy can fly him high above his head. John can ride him like a horse or cover him up to hide him. The best part is that John’s daddy is all his.

After reading a few books by van Genechten, I am definitely going to be looking for more. Everything he writes is so touching and beautiful. In My Daddy, a book geared toward toddlers ages 24 months and up, the author focuses on the relationship this child has with his father, as seen through the emotions of the child.  Daddy is a good playmate. Daddy is strong. Daddy is fun to be around. Daddy helps him learn things. It’s wonderful to see a book focus on this special relationship.

Van Genechten’s artwork is absolutely stunning in this one. The perfect blend of warm colors and emotions captured on this book’s pages are enough to melt your heart. Even though the book features a boy and his father, I can easily see girls warming up to this one too.

My Daddy by Guido van Genechten will make a wonderful addition to your child’s library.
