This is a great book for all dads and daughters. I think I found this more touching than my husband did, but I bought this for my 3 year old daughter to give to him. I teared up reading through it and thinking of them . Everything in it speaks from all ages. From becoming a dad for the first time to dads with grown daughters. Loved everything it contained !Great great book. My husband has such a great bond with our adopted daughter and this was the perfect book for them.

A simple little sentimental book that by itself is not a 5 star book but because my daughter gave it to me as a birthday present with handwritten notations throughout, she transformed it into something special. I suspect the author of the book would like it that way (or at least I would).

I'm going to let my dad pick out a quote from this book for my tattoo for him and going through it to pick some options many of them made me tear up.
It is very heterotypical and sexist but aside from those there are many meaningful reasons in this book.

A collection of sentimental one liners to remind Dads of the amazing role they play in their daughter's life. I usually hate these photo/inspiration gift books -- but I'll make an exception for this one. I often need the reminder. Joanna got it out of the mailbox and immediately read it to me cover to cover :)

Ditto to the other reviewer. My daughter gave me this book with notes and underlined passages. It doesn't get any better.

This isn't just a book that you can sit down and read cover to cover, but one that you can just pick up periodicially and read a few wonderful lines. Beautiful pictures!

A must for every father of a daughter. Have a son and you'll worry about him the rest of your life. Have a daughter and you'll worry about every body else's son the rest of your life.
