Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Story Celebrating Family Karen Kingsbury is best known for her best-selling contemporary Christian fiction for adults, but she is also making a name for herself in the realm of children’s fiction. Let’s Have a Daddy Day is the latest in a loosely organized series of children’s titles celebrating family togetherness in rhyme. The story uses simple, warm text to follow a father and his two children (one a boy, the other a girl) in a day devoted purely to quality time together in the outdoors. My young children absolutely soaked in the atmosphere of intentional bonding time, and were soon asking their own Dad for a “Daddy Day”, before asking to read the book again, and again! This may be a difficult book for children whose fathers work away from home much of the time or who serve overseas, as it is devoted only to spending time with dad. Parents may also wonder if they can expect any overt faith messages, as this title is published by Zonderkidz. Surprisingly, there are no mentions about Jesus, God, or faith, just a simple celebration of family togetherness. Dan Andreasen’s lovely, action filled illustrations are rendered in a textured, muted palette and drew my children right into the story. All in all, this is a truly lovely book that has reminded my children of how much they enjoy spending time with their own father in outside pursuits. Reviewed at quiverfullfamily.com

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Create a new memory for your kids - Daddy Days! This book is simply beautiful. The story reminds us of something we have decided to do with our kids. Each child when they arrive to 4 years old, have the possibility to go away with daddy for a period of time and spend time with only him. One on one time – fishing and going things the child wants to do. They go to the RV and eat what the child decides, do things the child wants to do and so on. I would strongly suggest to every family to do this with their kids. The illustrations are beautiful and flow well with the text of the story. The kids enjoyed looking the frogs and so on. My oldest even commented that it looked like the kind of days they spend with their dad during those one-on-one days.
