Night Night Daddy by Amy Parker Illustrated by Lee Holland

This soft covered board book is a sweet bedtime story told from the viewpoint of the child.  Many bedtime books are from the parent's viewpoint so it was nice to read it this way and read the love of the child for the parent.

The illustrations are beautiful and sweet.  The words and illustrations create a loving and fun relationship between a child and father. The only problem I had with this book is that on one spread the text changes from first person language "you" to "he" and that was awkward to read.   Otherwise I really enjoyed it. I think it is good for there to be books the emphasis each child with a parent. 

Amy Parker also has a book for a child and mother, and I find it nice to have both because it is important for children to each have their own special relationships with each parent.

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
