Put this on Your Must-Have List! This lovely book is about human dads, along with dads from the animal kingdom. All children are curious about dads, so this book will catch little one’s attention right away. The author captures the love human and animal dads have for their youngsters through delightful rhyming verses that will enchant children. She demonstrates the special relationship that exists between the dad’s and their children that are easily understood by little ones. The section where the daddy skunk teaches his baby kit how to use their “perfume” will cause your child to roll with glee. Most of all, the book emphasizes that dads are a gift from God. This is cute, adorable and funny book is not to be missed. Once you take a look at it, you will not want to put it down.

This is a darling volume for either boys or girls up to five years old. I highly recommend this 5-plus star book!
Toddlers will delight in this new book by Glenys Nellist. It is a padded 8 X 8 board book filled with eye-appealing illustrations and rhyme that sings. Each word has been carefully selected so that young children can relate to the ideas being presented. Each page showcases a different daddy and child "animal" while highlighting characteristics about daddies that children find special. The animals in the book are the polar bear, skunk, giraffe, octopus, lion, flamingo, bat, and elephant. The last page shows a human child and father and ties in James 1:17, the verse from Scripture that says, "every good and perfect gift is from God." (Daddy is God's gift to the child) Glenys did a masterful job of using the animals' natural traits and blending those into things that young children will find special about their own daddy. For example, one of my favorite pages was the one in which the flamingo daddy helps the child flamingo not to wobble on one leg. Another favorite was the skunk daddy showing the child how to make a stink. It made me smile and laugh. Overall, I loved the book!
Toddlers will delight in seeing, identifying, and hearing about the eight sets of animals included In "God Made Daddy Special." The pictures are adorable, and the 8" x 8" board book with a padded cover is sturdy for little hands. Each page celebrates the bond between an animal father and child, culminating with a human father and son. "God Made Daddy Special" is a wonderful laugh-and-cuddle book for parents and their toddlers. I received a copy of "God Made Daddy Special" from the publisher, but the opinions expressed are my own.
