"Thank You, God, For Daddy" by Amy Parker

"Thank You, God, For Daddy" by Amy Parker


Daddies do so much for us! It’s time to thank God for the blessing they are.

In this adorable board book, a little lion cub thanks God for his wonderful daddy—a daddy who gives big hugs and piggy back rides, who takes great care of him, and most importantly, who offers love, guidance, and encouragement.

Thank You, God, For Daddy
He scares monsters away.

When Daddy says, “Don’t be afraid,”
I know that it’s okay.

The love and sacrifices of fathers will be celebrated by children everywhere each time they snuggle up to read Thank You, God, for Daddy.

My thoughts...
This story was so adorable! It is presented as a prayer by a young lion cub offering thanks to God for his/her daddy and all that he does for him/her. I never really found anything in the story that said the cub was a boy or girl (similar to the "Thank You, God, For Mommy").

If you know our family, you know that our girls LOVE their daddy! They are daddy girls to the core! Destin just loves playing with daddy, and Arwen's first words were "da-da"! This book couldn't arrived at a better time...daddy is on vacation AND we are going through "the monster" phase. With daddy being gone, we have lots of phone conversations and he assures her that there are no monsters in the closet/bed/room.

My girls just love this sweet story about looking up to, and being thankful for having such a wonderful daddy. I am sure that any family would be able to relate to this beautifully illustrated, and well written treasure of a story.
