Book Review: What Daddy Did Today

My husband (aka Daddy) and I both have had the opportunity to review this book, What Daddy Did Today, with our son. I think my son has asked me to read this to him either at bedtime or quiet time every day since receiving this book.

I had never thought much about what my kids thought daddy did all day. I stay at home with my kids, so one or both of them is with me all day and they know what I do. But what does daddy do? My daughter is in first grade and she knows that what daddy does is talk on the phone & type on the computer, which in a nutshell is what he does. But my 3 year old son, I am really not sure what he thinks.

I asked my husband what he thought about this book and he said it was neat and is pretty sure that now our son thinks he rides a lion to work but he really likes how it ends. I will have to ask my son now what he thinks daddy does do at work.

I just love how the concept of the book embraces a child's active imagination and how they believe that their daddy can do anything, how they believe he is the strongest and fastest man in the world and quite possibly could be a super hero!

There are beautiful & brightly colored illustrations in the hard cover book and I really enjoy the weight and feel of the pages (I know that might make me a dork, but I really do like really paper books and some book pages just feel better than others.)

From the Author:

This is Daddy's chance to tell his child about all of the amazing things he does while he is away at work.  But amidst the heart-pounding excitement, which includes wrestling a dragon and traveling to outer space, Daddy has only one thing on his mind - getting back home to his child.

Gavin is very into imagination & is lately into super heroes - I bet he'd love this book. Never seen any book like this before.
