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.

Now in an exciting reissued format, accompanying the publication of Mommy's Kisses and Cuddles, 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, Daddy's Hugs and Snuggles celebrates the day-to-day joys of fatherhood. With tender, rhyming text from Linda Ashman, sweet illustrations by Jane Massey, and featuring a diversity of families, this book is perfect for daddies everywhere — who love and guide their little ones morning, noon, and night!
