Bright books with vibrant pictures on some activities that the kid and father does. It is supposed to be a flip book, not suitable for digital

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for the eARC

My Daddy and Me is about all of the things Daddy does. Each page tells of things that Daddy and the child do together including having breakfast, playing on the playground and getting ready for bed.  

I absolutely loved this book.  It is exactly what I look for in a toddler or preschool child’s book.  The dialogue is wonderful.  It is informational without being overbearing.  The illustrations are fantastic.  I love that each activity shows a different animal daddy and child.  

I ready this with my grandsons.  Many of the things they do in this book and the same as my son does with them.  They commented positively after reading the page with things like “My daddy and I do that!” or “My daddy gets my breakfast”

I get my sons and son-in-law books for Father’s Day instead of cards.  They can read them with their children.  This book is on my list for this June.  Put it on yours, as well.

I received an ARC from Clavis Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  This in no way affects my opinion or rating of this book.

Like My Mommy and Me, My Daddy and Me is a a great book for toddlers! The bright colors and flaps will grab their attention and make them want to read it over and over. It’s a sweet story with great illustrations, and I’m glad that the author did one for mommies and one for daddies.

My Daddy and Me is a cute book to share with my 18 month old granddaughter.  The illustrations are simple and colorful.  The pictures explore different activities of daily living that Daddy and Daughter do together. 
Such a cute story!

A wonderful book for children with colourful illustrations.  I only wish my grandson would do more with his dad, but he really is a mummy's boy.  I know he'll have great fun sharing this book and lifting up the flaps.

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy.  This is my honest review.

Bright color illustrations and a great book for little ones, about things they can do with their Dad. All kinds of fun activities, like swimming and bike riding and watching the stars! I recommend for toddlers.

My Daddy and Me is such a wonderful book for toddlers that shows all the fun activities that daddies and their children love to do together.  Various animal daddies and their children were shown throughout the book, which toddlers can try to identify as their parents read the story.  The colorful illustrations add to the enjoyment of this book.  I definitely recommend this book!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Clavis Publishing through NetGalley and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.

This book is super cute. I love how it's told from the point of view of different animals and how they do a series of different activities to do with their fathers. 

It has really pretty, colorful pictures that I'm sure children would love!

What an adorable, simple, little book! “My Daddy and Me” is a sweet tale of different things that small children could and often do with their Fathers, from getting dressed in the morning to going on bike rides.

Told from the child’s viewpoint, it is beautifully and vibrantly illustrated using different animals throughout the story. Focusing on children's’ emotions, there is even a discussion question at the end of the book.

This book is the perfect companion for "My Mommy and Me".  Nothing is better than spending quality, fun time with your Daddy.  This book is seen through the eyes of a variety of adorable baby animals and shows the wee reader how much these babies enjoy doing different activities with their Dad.

Unconditional love flows from page to page and the unfettered happiness that the illustrations express are palpable.  

Interactive lift-the-flaps bring an extra component of surprise and wonder to those expressive illustrations that are bursting with vibrant colours.  Reading the book together will generate such questions as : What do you and your Daddy like to do together? What is your favourite thing to do with your Daddy? ... just to name a few. This would be a wonderful gift for a new baby or as a Father's Day present.  Highly recommended.

Daddies are important and precious in every kid's life, especially if they are loving, caring and kind. These kids are proud of their dads and tell of the wonderful things they do together. This cute little book with its vibrant and colorful illustrations would captivate your kid's mind making them aware of the wondrous things they can do together with their fathers.

Considering this is a book meant for children 18 months and older, I think it's perfect. The art is very cute, lots of fun colors which is important for young kids. There is a variety of animals used and a variety of things each "daddy and me" does together. 

I'm not personally fond of the fact they repeat "this is my mommy" every single page. I feel like they could've tried to be a bit more creative but maybe they had their reasons for that.

This book has flaps which make reading so much more fun. I could not see the flaps in this computer version but I'm sure it makes for a very cute read. I appreciated that they had the dad doing all sorts of typical "mom" things like getting the kiddo dressed and gardening. Kudos for that! The "Mommy and Me" version is great, too!

Thank you to NetGalley and Clavis Publishing for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is a cute and simple book telling of all the different things children can enjoy doing with their dads.  I love that the end of the book has a discussion question about what the reader likes to do with their dad.  What a great way to get the reader to think outside of the book.

A small cute list of things kids like to do with the masculine parental unit, with different animals playing the parts, shown in big cartoony art. Designed for beginning readers, it’s meant to get the child thinking about their own experiences with Daddy. It’s sweet.
Somehow it seems very wrong to see alligators wearing clothes. . .
The “buy me” page at the end mentions something about how the pages can be folded to reveal new images, like the old MAD magazines, but it obviously doesn’t work on digital.
3.5 pushed up to 4/5

A variety of fathers and their children enjoy activities together in this simple story with bright, colorful and likeable illustrations.  Whether it is working together, playing together or getting ready for bed, life is fun for parents and children when they spend time together.  This is a nice read for a child and a dad to enjoy together.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this appealing picture book.  Since I read an e-galley, I missed out on lifting the flaps but you won't have to!

The illustrations are cute and show daddy and child doing various things together. Not a lot of substance but young kids should like it. 3.5⭐️

All the things Daddy and I do on any given day. I like the colors, very vibrant and simple cute illustrations. I'm reviewing as an advanced read copy so I cannot tell if this would be published as a board book but I think it would be great in that format for infant to early toddler. However, I did not enjoy the content of this book. I'm all about a good Dad book. My daughters favorite book is a Dad book and "Dada" were her first words. If you received this as a gift and someone gave you the Mommy and Me book companion, you'd be a little disappointed. Mom definitely gets more "chores" and Dad gets the fun activity. Spoiler, dads biggest task is changing his little one into PJs. Maybe its not any give day for this book and this is a take on Daddy and Me on the weekend? There is nothing wrong with the fun stuff but my husband does homework, cleaning and bath time. Let's encourage that in our child's literature.

A simple and easy to follow picture book about daddies. Different types of animals are illustrated spending time with their fathers. The perfect book for little ones and Father's Day.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own - and well - my four year old daughters.

I am an avid reader of Christian fiction, and while browsing for appropriate books on NetGalley, I came across some appealing children's books. I immediately thought that this would be an interesting and innovative way to read to my four-year-old daughter. A couple of books available for request was by Liesbet Slegers.

My Daddy and Me is a fun, colourful book that is easy to follow. My daughter enjoyed looking at all the pictures and seeing what each different animal child enjoys most about their fathers and what they enjoy doing together.

Thank you Liesbet Slegers.
