The Book

This endearing book is a shout out to fatherhood!  It praises daddies who tenderly and faithfully interact with their little ones and cherish the times that is spent together. 

This delightful rhyming board book highlights how daddies are gifts from God and are so wonderful for so many different reasons. 

Adorable animals teach, cuddle and share adventures to express the message that daddies are awesome and important.  Wee ones can relate to the story and express how they are blessed by their own sweet daddies.  The refrain that is repeated throughout the book, "Thank You, God, for giving me Daddy!' will be tucked into little hearts long after the last page has been shared. 

I love the book and highly recommend it!

Meet the Author


Pamela Kennedy grew up in the Pacific Northwest, graduated from the University of Washington, then launched out with her Navy husband to visit a variety of home ports in the U.S. Writing was a portable career that traveled well and allowed her to hang around the house with her growing family. After leaving the Navy, the family put down roots in Honolulu, Hawaii for several years where Pam enjoyed teaching at a girls' school. Recently retired, both she and her husband have returned to Seattle to be closer to their adult children and their families. When she's not playing with her grandchildren, Pam continues to write essays and hymn stories for IDEALS Magazine as well as inspirational and devotional books for children and adults. She has also collaborated with her daughter, Anne Kennedy Brady, on several children's books. Together, they created the Otter B series for Focus on the Family/Tyndale Publishing.

About the Illustrator

Angela started drawing animals at the age of four and has never stopped.  She grew up in the bush of Alaska, there were few roads so the family car was a tiny propeller bush plane.  She graduated from California Institute of the Arts and landed her first job with Disney Animation as a layout artist.  She spent her early career working as an artist in children's entertainment television.  Angela fell in love with children's book illustration when she was asked to illustrate her first picture book.  She now lives on a ranch just minutes from Los Angeles, with her husband and pets.
