I love my daddy




Quote of the Day:  
"Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you."
                        ~Marsha Norman  








Title: Time Together: Me and Dad
Author: Maria Catherine
Illustrator:  Pascal Campion
Ages:  4-6




This sweet book captures perfectly the precious moments shared between a loving father and his beloved child.  From the dedication page at the beginning of the book, to the daddy tuck-in at the end, this book highlights special times shared and enjoyed by both.  The illustrations are amazing and the colour pallet vivid and eye-catching. The text is simple and dovetails exactly with the creative artwork.  Different types of dads are featured who have one thing in common....they all love their little ones greatly and delight in spending quality time with them.  This book should be read by dad's at bedtime to their precious child.  This would present a great opportunity for them to bond together, it would open doors for meaningful conversation between the two and it would create memories in the child's mind that would last a lifetime.  This book will be released in February, 2014.

I searched high and low but could not find an image that I could identify never having seen her or a bio of the author.  If you know about her and what she looks like I would be happy to add it here.
