Daddy's Little Girl {A Book Review + Giveaway}

**I received this book from WorthyKids/Ideals for free in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are 100% my own.

There truly is something special about the relationship between a little girl and her daddy, isn't there?

My daughter is very much a mama's girl... but there is still that special connection there too, and I LOVE it! So fun to see how she admires her daddy and wants his attention.

Today, I'm excited to share a new book with you that celebrates that daddy and daughter relationship: Daddy's Girl.



Daddy’s Girl (April 4, 2017; ISBN 9780824956813; $15.99; 32 pp) 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.


If you have a little girl who loves dress up and pretend play, this book is going to be right up her alley! The first part of the book focuses on those details of preparing for a fantastic tea party, with a build up to a very special guest. There is glitter and boas. There are pretty dresses and crowns. There are jewels and fancy shoes... all of these things that my daughter- and so many girls- absolutely love. More than that, it truly does show the love of not just a little girl to her daddy, but a daddy to his little girl. We see this daddy dressed in a feather boa and homemade crown- not what most men have planned for their days, but such a sweet way to bond with their precious little girl.

Worthy Kids Books are perhaps among my daughter's favorites. They beautifully share uplifting and sweet stories in a way that makes sense to her, and in a way that is easy to catch on and follow. This book is no different! With its lovely illustrations and beautiful rhythm, my daughter loves reading it over and over again.

If you have a Daddy's Girl and are looking for just the right book for daddy/daughter reading time, Daddy's Girl is the perfect option.
