Does your little girl look to her Daddy as if he’s her superhero? Does your little boy make footprints in your heart?
Written by Karen Kingsbury, this set of books make a lovely read for your little boy and girl. I love the fact that there’s one for little boys and their mother, and another for little girls and their father. It is especially useful for us!
“Whatever You Grow Up to Be” documents a mother-son bond from infant to adulthood. Each page shows a life stage in the boy’s life, and his mother is always there to celebrate and encourage him along the way.
Now that I am a mother to a boy, I can fully relate to the story as I too, desire my boy to grow into the man that God has designed him to be. Life is filled with endless possibilities and God has a special plan for him – whatever he grows up to be.
I’m reminded that these sleepless nights, leg-hugging moments, the whining and banging on your toilet door, the endless piles of food-stained laundry….is only for a season.
I have only but this season to influence my children; the values and lessons we impart last for a lifetime.
“Always Daddy’s Princess” is the perfect book for little girls and their Daddies. Hannah enjoys snuggling up with Daddy while reading this whimsical book (filled with lots of purple and pink too!).
Similar to “Whatever You Grow Up to Be”, the girl’s father is always there for her, in every stage of her life. From tea parties to soccer games to boys and her wedding, she is her Daddy’s princess every moment.
The book provided a meaningful opportunity for Daddy to discuss with Hannah about life’s journey, God, her husband-to-be…and how she will always be important to Mama and Daddy.
Although it’s written in a Christian content, the stories will tug the heartstrings of any parent and child reading them.
Grab your copy at your nearest public library or bookstores. It’s a keeper. 😉
