Date Published: Aug 3, 2022
Publisher: Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.
The story of a lifelong memory given to a little girl by her father who grants her the gift of her dreams, which is... time!
What do #GIRL DAD’S DO? They show their daughters that quality time given to them doesn’t tick away. Quality time is recorded and locked in the heart to cherish and retrieved through the memory anytime they need it!
I admit it, I am a daddy's
girl through and through. I went places because my dad was going. I have
fond memories of helping my dad tinker on cars (not that I have any idea what I’m
doing or what the tools are called). I copied him and would tinker on cars without
my shirt on as well. It was the 70s after all and I was young. My oldest friend
thought I was a boy at first because of my short hair and no shirt.
We had that awkward stage from
puberty through young adulthood. Despite it, I knew he’d always be there. Now
in my 40s, I think we are closer than ever. He’s taught me a lot over the years,
and I appreciate the quality time we spend together. Whether it be on the phone
or in person, he is still the person I go to first when I’m trying to figure
out the best approach.
Because of these memories,
Polly’s Special Day resonated with me. This is a charming story of a girl, her
dad, and the memories they shared. I love that this book is full of teachable moments.
This book is beautifully illustrated and colorfully engaging. I think your
little one with love this! I recommend adding it to your reading routine.
