In the spirit of read-aloud family favorites like Guess How Much I Love You and I Love You Through and Through comes a fresh classic about the eternal love between father and child.

Daddy wakes before I rise. Drinks his coffee. Rubs his eyes. Sees me standing on the stair. Picks me up. Smooths my hair.

Discover a poignant, heartfelt ode to the special love between father and child. From sharing a quiet moment over the comics section at breakfast, to playing at bathtime before tucking into bed, My Daddy and Me celebrates the day-to-day joys of fatherhood. With tender, rhyming text from Linda Ashman, and sweet, tender illustrations by Jane Massey, in a cuddly padded board format, this book is perfect for daddies everywhere — who love and guide their little ones morning, noon, and night!

Praise for My Daddy and Me:

"There are so many different kinds of dads in the world that support their kids in so many different ways. This rhyming board book follows fathers and children through a typical day for a toddler and parent... The watercolor-and-ink illustrations utilize a gentle, pastel palette to depict fathers and children with a variety of skin tones and racial backgrounds. The lilting text reads aloud easily and is simple and predictable enough for even very small children to memorize and read along... Sweet and affectionate." — Kirkus Reviews
