Chidren’s Books About Dad
Title: What Daddy Did Today: A Father’s Bedtime Story
Author: Walter Wally
Illustrator: Judith Bicking
Age: Early Reader
The Story: What Daddy Did Today by Walter Wally was written with working daddies in mind. The rhythmic story explores – with child-like imagination – what daddy might be doing all day after he leaves the house. The daddy in the story doesn’t go to work in an office; instead he saves a kitten from a tree, flies a hot air balloon into outer space and even saves a lion cub from a dragon!
In the end, though, we learn about the very best part of daddy’s day, which is making it home in time to tuck his child into bed. The colorful illustrations only add to this whimsical story, and your child will want to read it again and again.
The Author: Author Walter Wally has always enjoyed making up clever rhyming stories, and, according to his website bio, “One of Walter’s fondest memories is sitting in his basement as a young boy, and creating his first rhyming story to explain why the walls would creak.” His love of story telling is evident in What Daddy Did Today, a book that is light-hearted and brilliantly creative.
The Illustrator: Talented illustrator, Judith Bicking has been hard at work illustrating books for children and adults for over 20 years. Her expansive work can be found adorning the covers of CDs and DVDs along with posters, magazines, games, toys, websites and books. Her illustrations are lively, up beat and full of color.
Reading is incredibly important, and it is something that all daddies should do with their children! So grab a daddy book today from Daddy Nickell’s Bookstore and get reading!
