  •     Great gift for my grandaughters.

  •     I bought this book for my husband for Father's Day. It is a very cute story and has a song at the end. So, if you play an instrument, the song goes with it too.

  •     I purchased this book for my 2 year old daughter to give her Daddy on Father's Day along with 2 other "Daddy" themed books. This one was very sweet and the song is cute too! I am sure it will be one of their favorites in the years to come!

  •     I love this book. My husband and daughter enjoy reading it together and I enjoy seeing the bond between them grow as they read about a father's love for his daughter.

  •     Bought this as a gift for my fathers daughter before she was born. It is such a sweet book.

  •     I bought this for my husband as we are expecting and he liked it very much

  •     This book is really sweet! I'm sure my husband and baby girl will enjoy reading it together for many years.

  •     I had no idea that they had made a children's book from the Mills Brothers' song! My husband and daughter sing this almost every night to each other. Needless to say, I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and it has become a very special item in our home. I wrote a note inside and dated it. I have no doubts that this book will become a family heirloom.

  •     perfect

  •     I had just gotten back from a family Thanksgiving with my nephew. Seeing him interact ith his daughter brought back memories of my own childhood along with the song. If ever there was a story that truly expressed the love between a daughter and her dad this is it. It's a good nighttime read as well as a good reminder that children are a gift from above. Thank heaven for little girls and the fathers that get the chance to be a part of their lives and form the woman one day they'll be.

  •     I really loved this book, especially considering as a very young child my mother sang this to me over and over while my father was stationed overseas during the Korean conflict.
