Book Review: "Always Daddy's Princess" by Karen Kingsbury
One of New York Times bestselling author, Karen Kingsbury, writes a heartwarming story about a little girl and her loving father in a beautifully illustrated children's book.
Blow the trumpet, sound the horn, Daddy’s princess has been born! The timeless journey of a daughter and father is poignantly captured in the story of a girl’s growth from childhood to motherhood. Playful, emotive prose, enriched by the whisper of God’s scripture on each beautifully illustrated page, invites girls and dads to see themselves reflected in this keepsake book and to be reminded of the blessings and the bonds between them. Throughout tea parties, soccer games, braces, and boys, a girl is her daddy’s princess every step of the way.
I feel silly admitting this but this children's book got me all choked up and teary eyed. I also got the warm fuzzy feelings as my husband sat down with my daughter and read this sweet story to her. Our children do grow up to fast and one thing my husband and I have discussed is the important role he has as a father to show our daughter love and how she should be treated. This book is great for every daddy. Father's day is fast approaching in June so pick this book up today for your daughter and husband to create a special bond together.
The book also reminded me of "Love you Forever." Both parents in the stories share a memory of their child growing up which hits home because my 5 year old is already getting so big.
My daughter seemed to enjoy her daddy reading her a story but also enjoyed the bright pink and purple colors and all the sparkly pages. She also liked the rhyming.
